Transparency International Responds To Cameron’s “Fantastically Corrupt” Comments About Nigeria

CAMERON-BUHARI-600x390This statement was shared on Transparency International’s website this evening.

Responding to the recent comments by UK Prime Minister David Cameron that Nigeria and Afghanistan were possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world, Cobus de Swardt, Managing Director of Transparency International said:

“There is no doubt that historically, Nigeria and Afghanistan have had very high levels of corruption, and that continues to this day.

But the leaders of those countries have sent strong signals that they want things to change, and the London Anti-Corruption Summit creates an opportunity for all the countries present to sign up to a new era.

This affects the UK as much as other countries: we should not forget that by providing a safe haven for corrupt assets, the UK and its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies are a big part of the world’s corruption problem.”
