MasterwebNews 11/5/16 - Nigeria says David Cameron`s remark embarrassing

[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - The Presidency says the statement credited to British Prime Minister David Cameron that Nigeria is “fantastically corrupt” is not reflective of President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption disposition.
 
 
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said in a statement last night that in making that statement, Cameron must be looking at “an old snapshot of Nigeria.”
 
“This is embarrassing to us, to us say the least, given 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,” Shehu said.
 

The presidential aide commended the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, for admitting that Buhari was not corrupt.
 

“Thank you to the Archbishop. We very much cherish the good relationship between our two countries and nothing should stand in the way of improving those relations,” Shehu said.
