Whistleblowing Is Very Good, Everybody Is Now A Watchdog — Keyamo

Lagos – Human Rights lawyer and activist, Festus
Keyamo, has lauded the whistleblowing policy of
the Federal Government as an effective tool in
tackling corruption. Are your ready to blow the Whistle? Keyamo on Sunday in Lagos, that the various
revelations about money stashed and abandoned
in some places were the positive effect of the
whistle blowing. “People are now ready to blow whistle, the
populace now have confidence in assisting the
government to fight corruption through
whistleblowing. “The war against corruption which seemed to be
lost is now turning back to a win situation and
revival for the country. The only warning is that
we are not yet there but we have taken a huge
step forward. “Whistleblowing is very good and everybody is
now a watchdog. I commend the policy, a
situation whereby everybody can raise alarm and
also alert the Economic Financial and Crime
Commission (EFCC). “We are gradually winning but we are not there
yet as there are many things to be done in this
regard,’’ he said. Keyamo said that though whistleblowing had
recorded some success stories, there must be
deligent investigation before trial in court to
forestall loss of corruption cases. “The second part of the anti-corruption fight is
that we must strengthen the arm of prosecution if
we don’t want corruption cases as an exercise in
futility.
