Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has revealed that Nigerian whistle blower has rejected the compensation sum from the N1 billion loot recovered.

He said the person in question rejected the money with the reason that it is a service rendered to the country and a way of contributing to the country.

“I want to put on record that the fellow through whom we recovered N1 billion, in an account, told us he does not want any commission from government because that was his contribution to the country.

‘’But, I can assure you that we are not going to renege on our promise to the appropriate commission to anyone who give us information that leads to recovery of money through this policy, ‘’ he said.

“The whistle-blowing policy is a very simple policy through which we encourage Nigerians who have any information about the violation of our rights, commission of a crime, fraud or corruption or any Nigerian who knows where certain money is being held or kept to anonymously contact us.

It was learnt that the sum of $136 million, N7 billion and another one million naira were, respectively, recovered from banks, and through the efforts of whistle blowers.

This is really first of it's kind. For someone to reject such a huge amount of money in this time of recession all in the name of rendering national service.

Hmm, if you were in the persons shoes, what would you do?
