President Buhari has accused the European community of giving corrupt Nigerian officials a safe haven in their countries to stash public funds that have been stolen. President Buhari said this during an interactive session with the Nigerian community in France.
According to President Buhari, bulk of the stolen money that could have been invested in the many sectors are being stashed away in some foreign banks.
A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, quoted Buhari as saying, “We are currently reviewing investments in the entire infrastructure of the country like road, rail and power, including investing more in education. We will certainly need to do more in education. My frustration is that some people still have plenty stolen money stashed away in Europe, US and other countries.’’
