President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in Abuja applauded the renewed support from Britain and Switzerland for the recovery and repatriation of public funds stolen from Nigeria.

The president gave the commendation at separate audiences with the new British and Swiss Ambassadors to Nigeria, who were at the Presidential Villa to present their letters of credence.

Buhari noted that British, Swiss and other foreign anti-crime agencies had already given his administration much help with relevant information and intelligence on public funds that were stolen and illegally transferred to personal bank accounts by officials of past administrations.


The President, however, called for the speeding up of the processes of investigation, prosecution and repatriation of Nigerian funds stolen by corrupt public officials and their accomplices.

??Switzerland and Britain have been very helpful indeed in the recovery of our assets. But we must build on what we have started.

??It is also important to send a signal to the elite that it is no longer business as usual.

?I personally appreciate the efforts of Prime Minister David Cameron on this issue.
