BREAKING: ICPC launches 'wahala dey' app for whistle blowers

BREAKING: ICPC launches wahala dey app for whistle blowers
In a move to enhance whistle blowing in Nigeria, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), has introduced a mobile application that will create a link between the general public and the anti-graft agency.

Ekpo Nta, the chairman of the anti-graft agency, launched the App in Abuja on Wednesday, saying it will aid anonymous whistle blowing for corrupt practices happening both within government agencies and parastatal as well as the private sectors.

In his address to newsmen shortly before the launch, Nta noted that only in partnership can corrupt-free Nigeria be achieved.

He said: “The commission will take proactive measures to block leakages in public and private sectors through which corrupt practices can be perpetuated.

“Corruption is a global and cross boarder problem that has far-reaching consequences on nations and societies. Nigeria is not an exception.

“As we grapple with the challenges of reducing corruption in the polity, we must recognize that this criminal activity thrives on opportunity to commit the act.

“The App (Wahala Dey) is in-line with the commission's drive towards harnessing technological solutions to fighting corruption in Nigeria.

“We champion the provision of technological solutions to corruption, one of which is the recently launched e-portal pssp.gov.ng for greater transparency and accountability in Nigeria's ports sector."

He urged the public to join hands with the commission.

The App called 'Wahala Dey' is available on windows mobiles, android mobiles and blackberry devices.
