Nigerians have been assured that looted funds from the country in the UK would be recovered.
This assurance was given by Britain’s Minister of African Affairs, Mr. Grant Shapps, in Kaduna, on Tuesday, during the inauguration of £100m programme on public sector and good governance.
According to the envoy, Britain would help Nigeria improve her security and prosperity.
He said the incidence of corruption in Nigeria directly affects Britain, adding that the European country would provide Nigeria with the expertise to tackle corruption.
He said, “Nigeria matters to the UK. The UK is fully committed to helping Nigeria increase its security, stability and prosperity.
“Tackling corruption is imperative to that. We share and support President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to rooting it out.
“We will continue to provide capacity building and technical and investigative support to Nigeria to tackle corruption and we are scaling up this support. We have an opportunity now to develop a comprehensive partnership across these areas.”
Speaking on the occasion, Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, said the emergence of Buhari was a divine intervention aimed at reposition the country.
