He made this known on Monday when he received participants from the National School of Public Policy Pakistan, who visited the EFCC headquarters on a study tour of the Commission.

He told the Pakistani delegation that more than ever there is the political will to fight corruption in the country, without which the agency would not have achieved a lot in such a short time.

He said: “we have unflinching commitment from the Presidency; the good will is encouraging us.”

He noted that it was the first time in the country that a civil organization is investigating the military and prosecuting both serving and retired military officers.

He also said very soon the EFCC would arraign some of the judges being accused of corruption before competent courts of law.

He said the Criminal Justice Administration Act has helped in doing away with unnecessary interlocutory court injunctions, noting that now there cannot be more than eight adjournments which has speed up the process of justice in Nigeria.
