The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission-ICPC has said the whistle blowing initiative of the federal government had increased the number of petitions received daily by the commission from different quarters.
The ICPC Chairman, Ekpo Nta, stated this at a convocation lecture he delivered at the Achievers University, Owo, Ondo State, with the title: ‘Ethical Deficit, Corruption and Crisis of National Identity : Integrity of Termites’.
Nta said the anti-corruption agencies in the country could not curb corruption alone without the cooperation of the citizens, commending the whistle- blowing system for yielding positive results in the bid to eradicate corrupt practices in the country.
While reiterating that the whistle-blowing system had tremendously increased the number of petitions received by the commission, the ICPC Boss however warned people against sending malicious petitions to the commissions in the name of whistle-blowing.
