Everybody has a responsibility to play in the fight against corruption, l am here to mobilize you the journalists also. It has been a tough one and we are going to increase the tempo of the fight against corruption this year. This time, we are fighting harder like never before. We appreciate the role of the judiciary and if you notice the Lagos CJ and the Chief Justice of Nigeria are really working hard and they have put in so much efforts in fighting corruption with the help of other judges.”
