"FANTASTICALLY CORRUPT" : BUHARI’S WAR WITH DAVID CAMERON

"FANTASTICALLY CORRUPT" : BUHARI’S WAR WITH DAVID CAMERON

By Ifeanyi Chijioke

For Family Writers

Britain is the backbone of Nigeria and this war Buhari stirred with Cameron is a war that will be very ugly if it does not end now. Accusing Britain of being a safe haven for all Nigerian corrupt leaders including him is a blatant move.  No one would ever thought of that from Buhari who has received support of all kinds from her majesty’s pocket and used her might at will. It is right for Cameron to talk ‘fantastically’ of the corruption in Nigeria. This is simply a way of chastening a child one loves but Buhari misunderstood this move and quickly attacked Cameron by saying “I do not need apology, I only need stolen money to be returned” this comment is politically dangerous and should not be swept under the carpet or Britain will have a dent. There are questions that must be answered and the answer will do much to calm the polity.


My questions are, is Cameron holding any money not belonging to him? Did Cameron steal Buhari’s money? Did he enter Nigeria and took Buhari’s money? How can Cameron know about stolen money and is Buhari telling us that Britain is responsible for the corruption in Nigeria? It is saddening that a country like Britain took everything Nigeria had but it is derogatory asking her majesty to give you back what she stole with such tone. Buhari simply made me to understand that Britain has no right to call Nigeria a corrupt country because her majesty is a party to the corruption.

“I do not need apology, just give me what you harboured, you assisted thieves and have the impetus to attack me that is fighting the thieves. I have nothing to say to you, I laugh but then just give me the remaining things”   call a philosopher and you will be shocked that this is what Buhari have on his mind. Buhari cannot further endure this incessant attack from Britain, if it is not coming from her majesty’s newspaper; it is coming from a citizen. There is significant fallout between Britain and Nigeria and this is why I am not surprised that Buhari attacked Cameron with alacrity.


There is no reason yet disclosed, no one can actually say why all of a sudden Buhari is under media and political attack from Britain. Nnamdi Kanu- a British citizen that was illegally arrested illegally denied bail and abused. In a normal setting, it is expected that it would cause a diplomatic row but when Britain took a position that beat my apprehension, it was clear that everything will be fine. There will not be any diplomatic row or political fallout. Attributing this attack to the illegal handling of a British citizen in the person of Nnamdi Kanu is not viable- though the world is still expecting Britain to act and show her citizen is defended irrespective of circumstance or colour.


There have been protest after protest to call the attention of Cameron; there is the need to also look at the sour state of the relationship with Britain as prompted by pressure over Kanu’s continued illegal detention. Whatsoever the case may be, Cameron must understand that the disintegration of Nigeria is the solution to everything he laments about. Nigeria itself is corruption and there is nothing good that can come out of Nigeria if not corruption.


Now Buhari has decided to confess that Cameron is as corrupt as he is and demanded his money Cameron stole instead of apology. Cameron should as well tell us more about ‘fantastically’ corrupt Nigeria. How genocide was committed against Biafra. What Biafra did that despite their loss and price paid for independence, they are still under subjugation and slavery.


Having signaled and concluded that Cameron is corrupt, Buhari has gone on to sample that’ yes Nigeria is corrupt because you are corrupt’. Buhari’s public acceptance of corruption is because he has already made it clear that even those that claim saint’ are corrupt. It is in this vein that Buhari now called for international court for corruption where he can battle it with Cameron. This court is the component of infrastructure for tackling corruption by first tracing stolen money he said Cameron has and ceased.

  1. I wonder when you will start clamouring for solid Deltans support by writing in support of James Ibori and his illegal incarceration in the UK. He will soon be out and as you may know he is still the chief captain steering the affairs of Delta State. Just a suggestion.
