Nigerians, according to the Federal Government, are still hesitant to expose corrupt practices to appropriate authorities.


Executive Secretary, Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, Sadiq Raddah, stated at the public presentation of the report of a survey on five years of whistle-blowing policy in Nigeria conducted by the African Centre for Media and Information Literacy, that this is because many people are scared of dying even for a good cause.

Raddah, who urged such people not to be terrified, cautioned them against becoming careless. He stated,

“Since the idea of whistleblowing began, we have realised some problems by people who want to blow the whistle.

“Yes, it is good to be afraid but if you become captive of fear and you want to be righteous, you end up being a captive without delivering.

”I have always said we must be willing to pay the price for doing what is good, including losing our lives.

“I have said several times that nobody wants to die but it is not bad to die while trying to pursue what is good. So people who want to blow the party history across the country, please try not to be afraid but indeed don’t be careless.
