The Presidency has said that the British Prime Minister, Mr. David Cameron still has the “old snapshot” of what Nigeria was before the coming of the President Mohammadu Buhari administration to have described it ” fantastically corrupt”, alongside Afghanistan.



 The Prime Minister while briefing the Queen of England, Elizabeth 11, Tuesday, after a cabinet meeting ahead of the Anti-Corruption summit where the Nigerian president is billed to give a keynote address on Thursday tagged Nigeria a “fantastically corrupt” nation.

But Cameron was countered by the ArchBishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby who reminded him that president Buhari was not corrupt.

The prime minister had come under verbal attacks from Nigerians who felt ridiculed by the development which appeared to have happened before a television camera without Cameron’s knowledge.

Reacting to the insult, the presidency through the senior special assistant to Buhari on media and publicity, Garba Shehu said that the UK’s remarks about Nigeria was wrong.

 The presidency also appreciated the Archbishop to rising in defence of Buhari.

 “It is certainly not reflective of 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 the pre-summit conference.

 “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”, the presidency said.
