According to him, “We need your support in fighting this corruption, I want you to join us in the fight. Corruption is like the rain beating down on everybody. All of us have a responsibility in fighting against it”, he said.
While clarifying that EFCC was not witch-hunting anyone, he said, “I can not identify any political party under investigation, but if you are corrupt, I will go after you and that is what we do. You can see that the two Governors who were convicted and are currently serving their jail term are of the ruling party”.
“If you are corrupt, we conduct preliminary investigation against you and we go after you, that’s why if you are invited to EFCC, there must be something we have discovered.

Asked about the whistle blowing policy, he said:
“The whistle blowing policy is working and we are paying”.
