The commission has already demonstrated prejudice, persecution and partiality” in sustaining justice for all.
Fraudulent activities, economic mismanagement, corruption, lack of accountability and transparency have been the bane of the economy.
The commission is charge with the responsibilities to rid Nigeria of Economic and Financial Crimes and to effectively coordinate the domestic effort of the global fight against money laundering and terrorists financing yet their fight is sectional
If the Commission is impartial and sincere to all, some top government officials will be behind bars too.
