God will reward whistle blowers ~ Bishop

According to Bishop Martins Uzoukwu of the Catholic Diocese of Minna, Niger State, those who expose treasury looters will not only be rewarded by the government but also by God.

“God will reward any person or group of people who offer information that can lead to the recovery of our hard-earned public funds.”

While speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN in Minna on Saturday, Bishop Uzoukwu praised the government for offering cash rewards to whistle blowers as the gesture would get more Nigerians to identify with the fight against corruption.

“Nigerians should complement the effort of the Federal Government by coming out with the required intelligence information that can lead to the recovery of stolen public funds,” he said.

He urged Nigerians to "see the fight against corruption as a national sacrifice."
