U.S. President, Donald Trump has said Nigeria has a massive corruption problem.
He made this observation on Monday while receiving President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House.
But the U.S. will continue to offer its support for Nigeria to proffer a lasting solution to the menace.
“Nigeria has massive reputation for corruption,” Mr Trump said while standing by Mr Buhari. I discussed it with the president and we agreed to do something on it.”
“We are working to cut” the corruption cases down, Mr Trump added.
When Buhari was asked whether he was offended by Mr Trump’s alleged denigration of African countries in the past, the Nigerian president said he was skeptical about the media reports and would rather not comment on them.
“I am being careful about what the press says about others and myself. But the best thing for me to do is to keep quiet,” Buhari said.
“The government of Nigeria remains committed to human right even in the course of fighting terrorism,” Buhari said.
