Supporters of Ayo Fayose might agree with the Governor for blaming President Buhari for the comments made by the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, describing Nigeria as a fantastically corrupt nation.

Punch reports that Buhari, in an interview with Sky News Diplomatic Editor, Dominic Waghorn, agreed with Cameron that Nigeria is corrupt.

Reports also say Mr. President said he was in no way embarrassed by the statement of the British Prime Minister.

 The Sky News Editor, Waghorn, on his Twitter timeline also tweeted Buhari’s answer.

 

Read the transcribed excerpt of the interview, which was obtained from Punch.

Waghorn: Will you like an apology from the Prime Minister?

Buhari: No, no. Not at all.

Waghorn: Are you embarrassed by what he (Cameron) said?

Buhari: No, I’m not.

Waghorn: Is Nigeria fantastically corrupt?

Buhari: Yes.

The President had said earlier, in response to Cameron's comment, that “I am not going to be demanding any apology from anybody. What I will be demanding is the return of assets. I have already mentioned how disgraceful one of Nigeria’s executives was. He had to dress like a woman to leave Britain and left behind his bank account and fixed assets which Britain is prepared to hand over to us.

“This is what I am asking for. What will I do with an apology? I need something tangible.”

Nigerians have also criticised President Buhari over what they call his anti-Biafra comments.
