Senate passes whistle-blowers bill to strengthen anti-graft battle

Senate asks FG to conduct Fresh Census in 2018

The Senate has passed the Whistle-blowers Protection Bill into law.

The bill seeks to encourage the disclosure of improper conduct by public officers and public bodies.

It also seeks to protect people who made the disclosure and those likely to suffer reprisal as a result of the disclosure.

With the passage of the bill, the Senate has concluded work on three anti-corruption bills.

They include the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Bill passed last May and the Witnesses Protection Bill later in June, as well as a bill seeking to set up a special anti-corruption courts which has been submitted to the constitutional amendment committee.
