Policy should be scrapped, it is almost giving the message that Nigerians are unpatriotic and would only whistleblow for financial gain, an effective share of the proceeds of the crime therein lies my problem with the policy it actually offers a percentage of the looted amount.

Policy would be more sensible the whistle blower are offered promotion with significant increased salary.

Soon as I saw that whistle blower policy that entitles the informer to 5% of the proceeds of any recovered loot,I just knew that this goverment was full of shallow thinkers,perhaps more concerned with how to enrich themselves than make any meaningful contribution to the growth of this country.
An averagely intelligent goverment with officials that think or analyze a policy would have graded the reward system for the whistle blower thus:
Say recovered money from 50-100m,about 5%;
101-1billion,about 2.5%-2%
1b and above 1%
This way providing incentive to the whistle blowee,u dont end up making them overnight billionaires or even encourage people in same goverment to become rich through the backyard by using fronts to act as whistle blowers through information they acquired in their official working capacities,with intention to share the cash reward behind the scenes.

That s actually envisaged in the policy. But the current crop of Nigerians and media reporters don't bother with details. The policy says between 2.5% being minimum to 5% being maximum payable. Now the determination of % to apply for any given amount will be that of the policy makers. Like it's done in banks for asset recovery the higher the amount to be recovered the lower the %.

Taken to Yaba Psychiatric hospital

He has not been paid his N850m reward —Lawyer




JUST like the drama and surprises that trailed the discovery of $43.5 million, £27,800 and N23.2 million at No. 16 Osborne Road, in Lagos, the matter has taken another dramatic dimension with the whistle-blower dismissing the claims by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, that he had gone mad


He, however, said he was only disturbed by the failure of the anti-graft agency to pay him the reward for exposing the loot in accordance with the whistle-blowing policy of the Federal Government.

Saturday Vanguard recalls that the government had in 2016 approved a policy on whistle-blowing that aimed at encouraging Nigerians to report financial crimes.


The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who announced the policy, said anyone, who provided information leading to the recovery of fund would be entitled to not more than five per cent of the recovered sum.




Shouting that he needed his money

Magun had at the 7th session of the Conference of State Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption, said the whistle-blower had become a millionaire.



While puncturing the claims that the whistle-blower had become a millionaire, Galadima said his client had been subjected to unfair treatment despite heeding the call to expose looters.

He said the inability of the commission to pay his client the reward after the forfeiture of the money made him to start shouting that he needed his money at the Department of State Security Service, DSS, apartment where he was kept.


They said he is mad

His words: “The day we went to the office of the then Acting President, they gave him a number that he could reach at any time. So he has been communicating with the Vice- President. Following the threats, they detailed some SSS to be working around him. “Because the guy had always been looking forward to seeing this money and it wasn’t forthcoming, he started shouting. When he started shouting, they said he was mad, that he is having a mental problem.

“The SSS people called me and said I should come and carry my luggage. They brought him to the EFCC and abandoned him there. The EFCC people called me that I should come and carry my client.

‘’On getting to the commission’s office, I was informed of my client’s mental illness and plans to take him to the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital in Yaba.


.

“They injected him and said they have to monitor him for a month. They monitored him for a month. The day they were going to release him, the EFCC called me again to come and carry my “critical asset.


‘’ This was a boy I never knew from Adam. I said ok, I went to the EFCC, the guy said he was ok, there was no problem anymore. They handed him over to me three weeks ago. I pay money into his account on a weekly basis for his upkeep.’’

A letter to the President Galadima further disclosed that he had written a letter to the President demanding that the boy be paid his money.

The letter which was said to have been written on October 12, 2017, partly reads: ‘’While you were away receiving treatment I wrote twice to the Acting President through the office of the Acting Chairman of the EFCC on 7th June 2017 and 24th July 2017 respectively.

Because the money discovered was about N17 billion and not N13 billion that is being declared. It was calculated as at the time the money was recovered.” He, however, dismissed reports that his client would receive N350 million reward, saying that the actual figure was N850 million.

An effort by Saturday Vanguard to get the reaction of the Spokesperson of the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwajuren was not fruitful as he did not pick his calls.

However, Uwujaren, in a statement yesterday said Magu never said the whistleblower had been paid his compensation.

Who works for free ?

Better not collect salary so that you will be a good citizen.

And when you demand your salary, may your employer bundle you to Yabaleft.

I guess the minister of finance who promised the fee is also unpatriotic ?
