British Prime minister, David Cameron, on Tuesday, described Nigeria and Afghanistan as “two of the most corrupt countries in the world”.
The prime minister, who was overheard speaking to Queen Elizabeth at an event at Buckingham Palace to mark her 90th birthday, told her that there were some “fantastically corrupt” leaders attending an anti-corruption summit in London this week.
“We had a very successful cabinet meeting this morning, talking about our anti-corruption summit,” Cameron said to the Queen.
“We have got the Nigerians – actually we have got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain.”
Cameron added: “Nigeria and Afghanistan – possibly two of the most corrupt countries in the world.”
President Muhammadu Buhari, today, jetted out of the country to participate in the international Anti-Corruption Summit which will be held in the British capital.
The summit, which starts on Thursday, plans to step up global action to expose corruption in all walks of life.
