The Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Department of International Development- Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn (DFID-PERL) on governance reform issues and service effective delivery to the Nigerian people.

Whistelblowing has been described as an act of patriotism, not an act of treachery, which is aimed at contributing to the building of a better nation for future Nigerians. The Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, who stated this at the opening of a seminar organized by the Bureau for Public Service Reforms (BPSR) in Abuja on Tuesday, noted that most information providers under the whistleblower policy were not motivated by financial gain, but by patriotic convictions.

She said that most of the successes of the Whistleblower policy so far has relied on the decision of the whistleblower to do the right thing, explaining that half of the 365 actionable tips received by the Whistleblowers Unit in the Ministry came from public servants, mostly touching on issues such as contract inflation, ghost workers, illegal recruitment into the Civil Service, misappropriation of funds and illegal sales of Government assets. Others are diversion of revenues and violation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) regulations.

I must admit that writing an article on a boss that has inspired, mentored and brought out the best in you and other staff, is slightly an arduous task to perform.
As Murray Newlands puts it, “effective leaders inspire movements that exist only when people choose to move in the same direction. Without a leader, movements fragment and get nowhere. The leader’s job is to inspire people to work together in the service of something greater than themselves”.
