The president made the remark today while speaking at the Commonwealth Tackling Corruption Together Conference in the United Kingdom.
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he doesn’t need an apology from British Prime Minister, David Cameron after the latter described Nigeria as “fantastically corrupt”
Buhari further said that the only compensation he’s interested in is the return of stolen assets which have been stashed in the United Kingdom by corrupt Nigerians. The president made the remark while speaking at the Commonwealth Tackling Corruption Together Conference in the United Kingdom today, May 11, 2016.
“No. I am not going to demand any apology from anybody. What I am demanding is the return of assets,” Buhari said according to BBC.
“I have already mentioned how Britain really led and how disgraceful one of the Nigerian executives was. He had to dress like a woman to leave Britain and leave behind him his bank account and fixed assets, which Britain is prepared to hand over to us. This is what I am asking for. “What would I do with an apology. I need something tangible,” he added. PM David Cameron was caught making the comment while speaking with the Queen during an event in Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, May 10, 2016. It has generated a lot of debates since then.
