The aim is to examine whistleblower protection in Nigeria since 2016 when the whistleblowing policy was introduced to create a framework for strengthening it as an important tool for fighting corruption.
When: May 24-28, 2021
Where: Keffi, Nasarawa State
Chido Onumah, Coordinator of AFRICMIL -
“This workshop is important to us in civil society much as it is to PICA and the Ministry of Finance, Budget & National Planning. It is a key segment of our work in institutionalizing whistleblowing and protecting whistleblowers in Nigeria and the Ministry sees it as the highpoint of their commitment to making whistleblowing a permanent feature in the fight against corruption. We are optimistic the outcome will benefit potential whistleblowers and enhance the accountability environment in the country.”
The keynote address will be delivered by Shehu Aliyu Shinkafi, Permanent Secretary, Finance (Special Duties)
Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI)
Progressive Impact Organisation for Community Development (PRIMORG)
Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD)
