“We have over 2,500 tips from various quarters in the country through the whistle blowing policy, not just the big ones, but, also, the small money. Someone diverting the petty cash for the university, we were able to get in there and stopped it. The fight against corruption is for everybody. The Federal Government has got more than 2,500 tips that they are working on, that will lead to the recovery of looted funds and blocking of leakages.

 She added that the country is already moving out of recession as government is taking measures that will get the country out of recession, adding that “Nigeria is coming out of recession. All the 36 states are viable and we are coming out stronger.”
