NASS Mulls Legislation To Make Whistleblower Policy Viable


A member in the House of Representatives, Hon. Jide Jimoh has hailed federal government on its whistle blower policy, stressing that the National Assembly is considering making a law that would make the policy stronger.
The lawmaker who disclosed this in Lagos while speaking with journalists said President Mohammadu Buhari has recorded impressive performance in the last two years.
According to him, comments credited to the Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) describing President Muhammadu Buhari’s claims in his Easter message, to having met the expectations of Nigerians as an insult on their intelligence is unfortunate and portrays members of the PDP faction as myopic.
He said, “We are trying in the National Assembly to make a law that will back up whistle blowing policy.”
The lawmaker maintained that any member of APC found guilty of corruption should be prosecuted, saying no citizen is above the law.
Jimoh said President Buhari in the last two years has fought corruption and ensure peace in the Northern Nigeria.
“No country can survive without peace. During the last administration, many lives were lost to Boko Haram mayhem but now peace has been restored”, he said.
In the area of economy, he appealed to Nigerians to support the President in order to find a last solution to the present challenges.
On the statement credited to Senator Ahmed Makafi on lack of improvement in the area of economy and unemployment, the lawmaker said the problems being combated by the ruling party presently were caused by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to him, the president is doing everything to surmount the problems, saying, “Nobody can accuse the President of diverting the nations fund because he is a man of integrity. He promised that Nigeria would be better especially in the area of economy. The president has tried his best in the area of fighting corruption.”
Jimoh said stable power in the country and viable industries would generate jobs for the unemployed.
