The Federal Government said yesterday that its whistle-blower policy had raked in N13.8 billion from tax evaders. It added other massive dividends of the policy included N7.8 billion, $378 million and 27,800 Pounds recoveries from public officials. Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed told reporters in his country home, Oro, in Irepodun Local Government of Kwara State that “the fight against corruption has been unrelenting, without fear or favour. The administration has driven corruption under the table.
“Nigerians no longer celebrate the corrupt. Looters no longer sleep at night, as the long arm of the law closes in on them. “This administration has embarked on institutional reforms to curb corruption. The implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) has plugged the loopholes being exploited to steal public funds.”
He urged Nigerians to be vigilant, adding that the “gains of the past three years plus must be preserved. Nigeria must continue on its present trajectory to sustainable growth and development. Never again must we go back to Egypt.
“2019 is the year of decision for Nigeria. It is the year that a critical decision will be made as to whether Nigeria will continue along the path of development, in all ramifications (social, economic, political, etc) that this administration has embarked on since 2015, or the country will retrogress and backslide to the throes of massive and primitive looting and lack of development.
