President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, said that he does not need any apology from British Prime Minister, David Cameron over his diplomatic gaffe.
The president made the remark while speaking at the Commonwealth Tackling Corruption Together Conference in the United Kingdom.
This came as the Presidency, yesterday, expressed ‘shock’ at the unguarded comment, saying that Cameron must have been looking at an old snapshot of Nigeria.
Cameron was on Tuesday afternoon, caught on camera describing Nigeria, along with Afghanistan as ‘fantastically corrupt’ countries.
But the president, on Wednesday morning said he does not want any apology, but expected the UK to help him reclaim Nigerian assets that had been fraudulently stripped from the country.
Buhari said: “I am not going to demand an apology from anybody. What I am demanding is a return of assets … This is what I am asking for. What would I do with an apology? I need something tangible.”
