With the ambiguous nature of corruption in our dear country, and the increasing clamor for whistle blowers (with benefits), the Federal government has deemed it fit to launch a mobile application for this course. With a feature to send a petition, and others.
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has launched a mobile application that will aid anonymous whistle blowing for corrupt practices happening both within government agencies and parastatal as well as the private sectors. The app is called “Wahala Dey”.
According to the chairman of the commission, Ekpo Nta who launched the App in Abuja on the February 13, 2017, he said that, “Corruption is a global and cross boarder problem that has far-reaching consequences on nations and societies.
Nigeria is not an exception. As we grapple with the challenges of reducing corruption in the polity, we must recognize that this criminal activity thrives on opportunity to commit the act”
Going forward, he also said “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.”
One cannot but appreciate the way things are going techy in this country. First is the application released by the Federal Government of Nigeria, another is the giant stride by the Nigerian legislative arm streaming their activities on Facebook and many more like that.
The App called ‘Wahala Dey’ is available on android mobiles, blackberry mobiles and windows mobiles and can be downloaded at no cost to users.
So my dear everyone, if you know “Wahala Dey” anywhere, you will do well to serve your country and be extremely patriotic by just forwarding a petition to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC). Please do this in good faith and make sure to have your facts at hand.
Now that’s “techy politics”, let us get back to the real tech world and enjoy life. *grins*
