Corruption: ICPC supports Whistle Blowing Website

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has given its support to an online social media whistle-blowing platform that will enable members of the public to track and report on the states of government projects.

The platform which is called Tracka is an initiative against corruption launched on 22ndJuly, 2014 by a network of active citizens and a Non-Governmental Organisation called BUDGIT.

Tracka with Twitter handle @ TrackaNG and website address, will provide avenues for social media users to give actionable reports in real time for appropriate response.

The platform is to create an environment that will foster improved service delivery from the government to the people by providing an avenue for citizens to engage their representatives at the State Houses of Assembly and the National Assembly while holding them accountable.

The Commission will use its zonal and state offices to monitor the website for report on abandoned capital projects and related matter for necessary action on its part.
