We receive hundreds of petitions daily - ICPC boss

Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offences Commission (ICPC) says it receives hundreds of corruption related petitions daily from whistleblowers.

The commission’s chairman, Ekpo Nta, who made this known at the convocation lecture of the Achievers University, Owo, explained that the whistle-blowing system has raised the number of petitions the agency receives from members of the public.

According to him, ICPC always counts itself lucky if it received up to five or 10 of such petitions monthly, before the introduction of whistle-blowing system.

Nta said, “Anti-graft agencies cannot curb corruption, The victims of corruption are the ones who will drive the curbing of corruption because they are the ones paying for it.

“When we were operating in a system where we are not getting whistle-blowing tips from citizens. If you are lucking in a month, you will get anonymous petitions may be five to ten.

“Suddenly we have put money on that business, there is hardly any day we will not get hundreds of petitions. Even your drivers when they see you carrying ghana-must-go bag of shirts you have collected from the laundry, they will write that there is money in the bag.”

The ICPC chairman, however, warned against sending frivolous and malicious petitions to the agency in the name of whistleblowing.
