In a recent interview in London, Lai Mohammed insisted that the Federal Government of Nigeria is fighting corruption to develop the country and not to impress Transparency International. He also stated that the Government is already winning the fight against corruption.

Lai Mohammed said; 
“In any event, we are not fighting corruption because we want to impress any organisation. We are fighting corruption because we believed that without fighting the menace, the much-sought development will not happen and we have results to show for fighting corruption. 
“We have put in place policies and legislation that have tamed the monster called corruption. For instance, apart from the TSA which has saved us billions of Naira, we put in place transparency portal which enables every Nigerians to see how much is being spent by government every day.
“Under the transparency portal regulation, any expenditure above N5 billion must be reported and that gives every Nigerian the opportunity to know exactly what is going on.
“We will continue to fight corruption and we know that we are winning the war.”
While questioned about allegations that the current Government is prosecuting a selected group of people in their fight against corruption, Lai Mohammed said;
“How do you say that when serving senators and past governors who were members of the ruling party are now serving jail terms?”
