SERAP demands re-instatement of sacked whistle-blower

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has sent an open letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, requesting him to facilitate the re-instatement of a worker sacked for reportedly exposing an alleged fraud in the ministry.

It said  Ntia Thompson was sacked through a post on the Directorate of Technical Cooperation in Africa’s notice board for exposing an alleged $229,000 fraud in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The group in its letter dated March 10, 2017 urged  Onyeama to “act swiftly to comply with the whistle-blowing policy of the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, and international standards, which guarantee full protection and restitution for any whistle-blower against harassment, intimidation, victimisation or any form of retaliation.”
