FANTASTICALLY CORRUPT’- DAVID CAMERON

At the reception, Cameron was picked by a television crew in a light conversation with Queen Elizabeth as laughing off both Nigeria and Afghanistan as frantically corrupt countries in the world.

“We had a very successful cabinet meeting this morning talking about the anti-corruption summit,” Cameron said to Her Majesty.

Afterwards, in what appeared to be a mockery the UK Prime Minister had said with a bit of  chuckle that “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.”

However, there was yet another top notch personality in the conversation who would take disagree with Cameron on current Nigerian president and that was Archbishop of Canterbury.

The Archbishop was heard coming to the defense of President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari , that he is not corrupt.

Meanwhile, the Queen’s response to Cameron’s comments was not clear and audible enough to be heard.

Nigerians have reacted to the Prime Minister’s comment as they appear to be less than pleased with the “embarrassing remarks”.

In a statement emailed to CNN, Nigerian presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said Cameron was looking at the past.

“This is embarrassing to us, to say the least, given the good work that the President is doing,” the statement said. “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.”

President Muhammadu Buhari struck a less antagonistic tone in a statement on Wednesday when he said “I am not demanding an apology from anybody, I am demanding a return of assets.”

Though the Presidents of both Nigeria and Afghanistan have earlier agreed that their nations are corruption rocked , they have equally sent signals that they want to change such bad image.
