Employees Can Now Report Wrongdoings Through The Whistle-Blower Initiative

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) will introduce its Whistle-Blower initiative, a state-wide project designed to give employees, stakeholders, and the general public a platform to report any observed violation, misconduct, or unethical behavior throughout the state.

The Whistle-Blower initiative is a public policy of the State Government to encourage reporting of illegal actions or financial crimes, through the appropriate channel, with a view to correcting the violations or non-compliance, according to a public notice signed by the LIRS Executive Chairman, Ayodele Subair.

According to the LIRS boss, “In line with the LIRS core values of integrity and accountability and our commitment to uphold the highest standards of openness, probity and accountability in our dealings with stakeholders, the platform is anonymous and confidential and it is independently managed by Deloitte, a globally accredited company.”

“The objective of the Whistle-Blower initiative is to guarantee transparency, accountability, and confidentiality to all taxpayers and stakeholders in general.

“The policy is designed to protect whistle-blowers from victimization and to encourage them to freely report without fear,” Subair submitted.

The launch of the Whistle-Blower initiative is scheduled to take place at the Protea Select Hotel, Assibifi Road, Alausa-Ikeja, Lagos.
