The presidency has replied British Prime minister, David Cameron, over his comment today that Nigeria and Afghanistan were possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world. In a statement released by the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, the Federal Government said Cameron's statement is certainly not reflective of President Buhari's work against corruption
"This is embarrassing to us, to say the least, given the good work that the President is doing. The eyes of the world are on what is happening here.It(Cameron's statement) is certainly not reflective of the good work that the president is doing. The eyes of the world are on what is happening here. The Prime Minister must be looking at an old snapshot of Nigeria. Things are changing with corruption and everything else.
That, we believe is the reason they chose him as a keynote speaker at the pre-summit conference.”?the statement said
