African Centre for Media & Information Literacy has launched a project that would further help whistleblowers in Nigeria to notify relevant organizations of corruption activities in the country.

The project tagged “Corruption Anonymous Project, CORAP, seeks to engage society and Nigerians in general in tackling corruption.

AFRCICMIL Coordinator, Chido Onuma, said while launching the project on Thursday, August 9, that project aimed at creating awareness about whistleblowing and making Nigerians see the need to adopt whistleblowing as a tool for reducing corruption in the country.

“The Nigerian government, as we are all aware in December 2016 announced a whistleblowing policy which offers financial incentives for citizens who blow the whistle that leads to the recovery of looted public funds. Specifically, corruption anonymous seeks to create awareness about the government whistleblower policy, increase public confidence and support for the policy, advocate for protection of whistleblowers, as well as promote the institutionalization of the policy,” he stated.
