Sincerely, it is now that Nigerians will begin to be interested in war against corruption. This is because the new anti corruption policy approved by the Federal Government will ensure that if you report financial crime, you will earn 5% of all loots recovered from the crime.
According to Premium Times, part of the highlights of the new policy is that whistle-blowers whose revelations lead to recovery of money would be entitled to up to five per cent of the recovered sum.




The report states that the new anti corruption policy was approved Wednesday, Dec. 21st 2016 at a meeting of the Federal Executive Council, chaired by President Buhari in Aso Rock Village Abuja.
The Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun revealed that the policy is in sync with the office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice and that be a stop-gap initiative until the National Assembly formally passes a law on whistle-blowing.




In her explanation, the policy is to strengthen the anti corruption efforts of Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
To ensure this feat is successful, a website with contact numbers to be contact to report the crime will be made available and whistle-blower’s identities will be kept private and protected.
How do you see this?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Speaking to State House correspondents after a private meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential Villa, Abuja, the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Mr. Solomon Dalong on Thursday said that the Federal Government hasn’t paid the allowance of members of the Super Falcons because they didn’t think the Falcons would win the championship in Camerron , hence didn’t make any provision of funds for them.

He said no money was readily available to pay the players. However, he said serious efforts are being made to find a way to solve the problem at hand. He said:




“It is unfortunate that we are celebrating victory of the Super Falcons amidst some bitter feelings among the players because of some administrative lapses that were not managed properly because if the situation was explained to these girls, I don’t think the situation would have gotten to this level.
They have stamped their authority and dominance over football in the continent, having consistently won the trophy eight times. After the girls came back from Cameroon, we had lunch with them and they were in high spirits, the communication gap in trying to convey the situation to them could have been what led to it.”
