The Executive Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has appealed to the youths and general public to embrace the Whistleblowing Policy of the Federal Government in exposing economic and financial crimes.
Bawa made this appeal on Wednesday when he met with a group of social media influencers under the aegis of the Mofeto Miracle Shurch in Abuja.
In a statement titled, ‘EFCC Boss Meets Leaders of Mofeto Miracle Shurch, Tasks Nigerians on Whistleblowing’ and posted on EFCC Facebook page, Bawa assured that the policy was still in force and closely monitored by the anti-graft agency.
He added that whistleblowers have the opportunity for legitimate earning by exposing economic and financial crimes that lead to financial recovery.
The EFCC chairman encouraged whistleblowers to make use of the EFCC reporting app, Eagle Eye, which could be downloaded from Google Play Store or App Store, to report economic and financial crimes cases.
Led by author and human rights activist, Richard Akinola, the group said they have followed closely the performance of the Bawa-led EFCC and have come to the realization that concerted efforts are needed in the corruption fight.
They promised to partner with the commission in the fight against economic and financial crimes.
Other members of the group that were part of the visit include Lara Owoeye-Wise, Gbenga Aruleba, Yomi Odunuga and Kemas Osuji.
