Professor Soyinka who gave the warning at the opening of a four-day conference of heads of anti-corruption agencies from across Africa in Abuja said that that he paid a visit to the EFCC headquarters in order to get a first-hand experience of the plans the anti-graft agency had for corrupt leaders.
"This fight against corruption is about Nigeria". We never intended, and we are not engaged in witch-hunts, but we are determined within the laws to call people to account.
The President said under his watch, all Nigerians were now aware that corrupt officials would be held to account, no matter how long it took.
Quoting figures from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC), Ms Scotland said Africa loses $148 billion per annum to corruption. It was a neighbouring head of state.
"I took the trouble yesterday to visit the new headquarters of the EFCC; I wanted to see what would be the mode of hospitality for some of our leaders who will surely sooner or later pas through the doors of that handsome building not far from here".
Mr Dogara, whose short remarks received thunderous applause from staff of the commission, said building a headquarters for the commission, "as important as it is" was not enough commitment to the fight against corruption.
He described the inauguration of the EFCC head office building as another milestone in his determined and collective fight against corruption. Throughout my journey in national service and since 2015, I have made a very conscious decision to pursue a vigorous fight against corruption in public life.
Soyinka said, "That we have been bled dry in this nation by corrupt leadership and their agencies is nothing to reiterate".
He said there is now a realisation that "corrupt officials would be brought to justice no matter how long it takes".
"We have recovered and are still recovering trillions of naira that were stolen in the past few years by people without conscience".
This is the only way we can ensure victory.
He, however, expressed the hope that other arms of government including the judiciary and legislature would collaborate with the executive on the current war against corruption in the country.
He urged the National Assembly to "add more verve" to the government's effort by "reviewing archaic provisions" that would address lapses in the legal frameworks.
"War of corruption is not an easy one to fight, because it affects so many different branches of our lives, so much that some people do not even consider breaking trust is anymore a crime".
