He said: “We probably will have ups and down in the whole process of the fight against corruption.  But at the moment, I will tell you, honestly, I think we are doing very well. We are almost getting back on track.

“If you see the volume of work taking place, you will also appreciate the fact that things are on the right track.

“The fight against corruption requires an all- inclusive approach; we all need to be involved and it has to have a Commander- In- Chief because leadership matters a lot in the fight against corruption.

“When I talk of leadership, I mean political leadership at the highest level. Today, I think that there is no Nigerian who will ever doubt that the political leadership is extremely strong when it comes to fighting corruption; that is very important.

“It is probably the number one thing that is needed when you are going to wage a war against corruption. We also have the physical people who are doing the work.”
