Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Finance Whistleblowing Program rewards whistleblowers for providing information on a wide range of matters, including violation of government financial regulations, misappropriation of funds, theft, corruption and fraud. Whistleblowers responsible for providing information that directly leads to the return of public funds or assets may be entitled to a reward ranging from 2.5% to 5% of the amount recovered.
The Ghana Whistleblower Act of 2006 rewards whistleblowers with 10% of the money recovered as a direct result of the information provided. However, the Attorney General, in consultation with the Inspector General of Police, may reward a higher sum.
The Whistleblowers Act covers a wide range of crimes, from economic crimes such as stealing, fraud, bribery and corruption, to environmental degradation, endangering public safety and mismanagement of public resources. A guide to the Whistleblower Act can be found here.
