The Federal Government announced on Tuesday that its whistle-blower policy has raked in N13.8 billion from tax evaders in Nigeria.

 

It added other massive dividends of the policy include 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 of Oro, Irepodun local government area of Kwara state.

He added 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 diligent implementation of the Treasury Singles Account (TSA) has plugged the loopholes being exploited to steal public funds.”

Alhaji Mohammed urged Nigerians I want to be vigilant and not to yield the space to naysayers.

He added 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.

“The year 2019 is the year of decision for Nigeria. It is the year that the 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 upon since 2015, or the country will retrogress and backslide to the throes of massive and primitive looting and lack of development.

“As we approach this critical fork on the road, I have no iota of doubt that the good people of Nigeria will choose the path of development, having seen the commitment, sincerity and patriotism of this administration. It is clear, from all indications that Nigerians are not going back to Egypt. Because of the support of the people, our party will win, even with a wider margin, in 2019, thus sealing the fate of the naysayers.
