Wole soyinka, the noble laureate says the anti graft war would not be said to have been won until, the likes of ex-presidents, governors, Ministers and other public office holders who where found guilty of corruption are jailed by the Economic And Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

Buhari said, "This is another milestone in our determined and collective fight against corruption".

"We have recovered and are still recovering trillions of naira that were stolen in the past few years by people without conscience".

Soyinka said, "That we have been bled dry in this nation by corrupt leadership and their agencies is nothing to reiterate".

He made the statement while speaking at the opening ceremony of the 8th Commonwealth Regional Conference for Heads of Anti-Corruption Agencies in Abuja on Monday.

"I am not a vengeful person, but I think that until we make sure that some of our leaders pass through those doors, this struggle against corruption in this country will not be won".

"I took the trouble to visit the headquarters of the EFCC, I wanted to see what will be the mode of hospitality for some of our leaders who sooner or late will pass through the doors of that handsome building not far from here", he said.

Buhari called on the Legislature which provides the legal framework for the anti-corruption war to add more verve to the determination of the government to rid the nation of the brazen corruption witnessed in recent years.

He also advises corrupt leaders to prepare for a change in lifestyle when they leave office and justice catches up with them.

He therefore appealed to Nigerians to support regulatory agencies like EFCC, because fighting corruption was everyone's concern.

She hailed President Buhari's example and his commitment to Nigeria's efforts at recovery of stolen asset.

Dogara who was on a working visit described the building as a dream come true, noting that the project was justified considering the quality of infrastructure put in place and the fine finish of the work.

In his remarks, the acting chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, expressed the hope that the head office building would address the office accommodation challenges facing the commission.
