The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has introduced a mobile application called “wahala dey” that will create a link between the general public and the anti-graft agency in order to enhance whistle blowing in Nigeria. The App is available on windows mobile phones, android mobiles and blackberry devices, and can be downloaded by users at no cost.
“The App (Wahala Dey) is in-line with the commission’s drive towards harnessing technological solutions to fighting corruption in Nigeria,” said Ekpo Nta, the chairman of the anti-graft agency.“We champion the provision of technological solutions to corruption, one of which is the recently launched e-portal pssp.gov.ng for greater transparency and accountability in Nigeria’s ports sector.”
According to Nta, the app will aid unknown whistle blowing for corrupt practices happening within government agencies and parastatals, as well as the private sectors. He urged the public to join hands with the commission.
