PRESIDENT BUHARI DESCRIBES CORRUPTION AS AN EMBARRASSING TOPIC.
President Muhammadu Buhari in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Wednesday described corruption in Nigeria as an “embarrassing topic.”
He was responding to a question if Russia had become the new best friend of Africa during a panel discussion on the second day of the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh.
He highlighted measures by the Nigerian government to eliminate corruption through lawful enforcement and preventive measures.
Buhari affirms the government’s resolve to actualize his promise to reduce poverty in Nigeria.
He, however, said his administration has recovered a hundred million dollars from proceeds of corruption taking outside the country.
