Falana Calls For Independent Whistleblowing Office

1 min read

A renowned Nigerian human rights lawyer and activist, Femi Falana, has advocated for the establishment of an independent whistleblowers’ office in order for Nigeria’s whistleblowing policy to be more effective and protective of whistleblowers.
The human rights lawyer said this during a two-day conference, “Tracking Noxious Funds,” held in Lagos.
The conference, which was organized by Kent Law School at the University of Kent, in partnership with some Nigerian civil society organizations and human rights advocates, enjoyed the presence of some prominent Nigerian lawyers, law enforcement agencies, journalists and human right activists.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Falana explained that Nigeria’s colonial past prevented whistleblowing from taking off in the country, as it caused many Nigerians to not trust the government and therefore made many reluctant to share information with the government.
