Buhari demands stolen assets after British PM’s comment
President Muhammadu Buhari has asked that Britain return assets held there by corrupt Nigerians, after the British prime minister, David Cameron was caught saying Nigeria was “fantastically corrupt”.
Cameron was on Tuesday during a conversation with Queen Elizabeth, caught on camera telling the queen, “We had a very successful cabinet meeting this morning talking about the anti-corruption summit.
“We have got the leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain … Nigeria and Afghanistan, possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world.”
Cameron’s slip has dominated the build-up to a global anti-corruption summit he is hosting on Thursday which Buhari will attend.
When asked if he would demand an apology from his host during a pre-summit event in London, Buhari said: “I am not going to demand any apology from anybody. What I am demanding is the return of assets.
“What would I do with an apology? I need something tangible.”
