President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in New York called on the international community to urgently redouble its efforts to strengthen mechanisms for dismantling safe havens for proceeds of corruption.

Addressing world leaders at the 70th General Assembly of the United Nations, President Buhari also urged his counterparts to do more to return stolen funds and assets to their countries of origin.

Observing that corruption, cross-border financial crimes, cyber crimes and human trafficking are major challenges of the 21st century which the international community must work collectively to overcome, President Buhari reaffirmed his administration’s determination to frontally confront the twin evils of corruption and illicit financial outflows.

“Let me reaffirm the Nigerian government’s unwavering commitment to fight corruption and illicit financial flows. By any consideration, corruption and cross border financial crimes are impediments to development, economic growth, and the realization of the well-being of citizens across the globe,” Mr. Buhari said.

“Nigeria is ready and willing to partner with international agencies and individual countries on a bilateral basis to confront crimes and corruption.

“In particular, I call upon the global community to urgently redouble efforts towards strengthening the mechanisms for dismantling safe havens for proceeds of corruption and ensuring the return of stolen funds and assets to their countries of origin.”

President Buhari also proposed the adoption of peace as a seventh essential element of the Sustainable Development Goals adopted last Friday by world leaders in New York.

“The Secretary General has grouped the SDGs into what he calls six “essential elements” namely: Dignity, Prosperity, Justice, Partnership, Planet and People.

“As a prerequisite to these and as we look at history and remember the terrible events that gave rise to the birth of the United Nations in 1945, I would like to propose a seventh: PEACE.

“Peace is close to the hearts of Nigerians, as we are in the front line in the war on terror. Boko Haram’s war against the people of Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon may not attract as much worldwide attention as the wars in the Middle East but the suffering is just as great and the human cost is equally high.

“This is a war between progress and chaos; between democracy and the rule of law. Boko Haram celebrates violence against the weak and the innocent and deplorably, they hide behind their perverted interpretation of Islam. Boko Haram is as far away from Islam as anyone can think of,” President Buhari declared.

The President assured the global community that his administration was doing all within its powers to quickly overcome the challenge of terrorism and insecurity.

“The new Nigerian Government which I have the honour to head, moved with dispatch to put in a bold and robust strategy to defeat Boko Haram. Nigeria and her neighbours Cameroon, Chad and Niger plus Benin are working together to face this common threat within the regional framework of the Lake Chad Basin Commission.

“We have established a multinational joint task force to confront, degrade and defeat Boko Haram. We have driven them away from many of their strongholds, killed or captured many of their operatives or commanders and freed several hundreds of hostages,” President Buhari told the General Assembly.

The President reassured the international community that rescuing the Chibok girls remains one of the major objectives of his administration.

“We are working round the clock to ensure their safety and eventual reunion with their families. The girls are constantly on our minds and in our plans,” he said.

President Buhari condemned the new and dangerous dimension which human trafficking has assumed in the world.

“We in Africa are grieved to see hundreds of our able bodied men and women dying in the desert or drowning in the Mediterranean.

“We condemn in the strongest terms these people traffickers and will support any measures to apprehend and bring them to justice,” the President said.

Noting that the world was witnessing a dreadful increase in conflicts fuelled by availability of small arms and light weapons, President Buhari called on the international community to work towards the effective implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty to ensure that small arms and light weapons can only be legally transferred.

Reminding the global assembly that peaceful co-existence and self-determination were among the key principles that led to the establishment of the United Nations, President Buhari called for the urgent resolution of the question of self determination for the people of Palestine and Western Sahara.

“The international community has come to pin its hopes on resolving the Palestinian issue through the two – states solution which recognizes the legitimate right of each state to exist in peace and security.

“The world has no more excuses or reasons to delay the implementation of the long list of Security Council resolutions on this question. Neither do we have the moral right to deny any people their freedom or condemn them indefinitely to occupation and blockade,” the President said.

    Solid intervention from a true world leader as Nigeria takes her rightful place in the comity of Nations.

    • GEJ FOREVER

      Did you say world leader or Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani leader ?

      World leaders do not parade forged none existent WASC …. please stop the joke!

      • pheliciti

        The worst affliction known to man is lack of shame. Unfortunately, that’s what you suffer from. Imagine you having an incoherent failed leader as hero and you have the temerity to come here and trumpet it? How do you defend this choice to your children? I would have advised you sleep and think but as it is, you seem deaf dumb and blind and you cannot think.

      • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

        Is it not worse for you to believe that President Buhari is a Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani leader that is also your ruler? …your leader? ….your commander in chief? your President?
        Whether you like him or not, support him or not, voted for him or not he is still your President!

        Does it not pain you that you are a non-factor? You are completely powerless to do anything! You supposedly know for a fact that he has no WASC certificate and he is unqualified, but he is still your President.

        Does it not kill you inside to know that you are as essential as a lone zero after a decimal point?
        your votes don’t matter. your affection does not matter, your views do not matter, your agreement does not matter and most of all You as yourself don’t matter!

        ………please continue to try pitching the Hausa’s against the Yorubas. Keep insulting them. All your efforts are only helping to maintain the status quo………and the prolongation of your irrelevancy!

  • GEJ FOREVER

    NONSENSE

    All that Buhari needs to do is to identify the so called stolen wealth and then go through due process to recover them … I really do not think that Buhari knows the things that are important.

    Buhari simply does not have the brain and mental capacity to be President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria …. the only slogan and mantra in Buhari’s uneducated mind is “I will fight corruption” …. that’s the only thing on Buhari’s CV.

    But then, Buhari is tainted as he was the first Nigeria to pioneer monumental looting of public treasury with his $2.8Billion NNPC scam …….. plus his forged none existent WASC scandal which is he yet to authorise Cambridge Assessment, UK to confirm or deny.

    Bottom line ….. world leaders are now fully aware that Buhari is only suited to advance his ethno-religious interests and cannot move Nigeria forward ….. that is the reason many of them including Obama, Cameron, Michelle, Holland etc are already distancing themselves from Buhari.

    p/s

    By the way …. why can’t Buhari start the recovery with the list Oshiomhole said they wereb given by the US

    • ituri

      You are totally correct. He needs to provide a list showing; the thieves’ names, country and bank where the stolen is deposited, and an approximate amount deposited. There is no country that will act without Nigeria presenting is list of what was stolen. Another reason they are distancing themselves from him is that they’ve realized the so-called fight against Boko Haram is staged, since captured or surrendering Boko Haram members are not punished, but instead are given money from the 2.1 billion dollar loan to help them rehabilitate.

        @Dananche:disqus

        Muhammadu Buhari should go home and do justice to the child hawking on the streets,
        and to the millions rendered into beggars by the like of RAJI FASHOLA who abused his
        office to steal 25 plots of land in Lekki on the 26th of May this year, and, by the example
        of Goodluck Jonathan who along with his criminal accomplice JIDE OMOKORE pocketed
        $4.5 billion due due back to the treasury. A political system that allows such highly criminal
        thefts is NOT worth preserving by the international community.

    • burning spear

      We are talking about reparations from the west—That was what the West aided the Fulanis to murder MKO Abiola-for-Besides was it not Buhari who told the globe that Abacha did not steal from my oil wells in the Niger delta? Double tongue abi? So what is he talking about at the UN? It seems Buhari has erasable memory-stick installed in his brain- Yesterday he also said Jonathan should stop killing boko haram fighters—————That was why he refused to attend a meeting on the IDPs now this rubbish when he knows the thieves we have in Nigeria are the Fulanis–who are the real OIL BLOCK OWNERS—ati their Yoruba counterparts-like Madam Alakija ati Adenuga-

    “The new Nigerian Government which I have the honour to head…” – President Buhari
    Mr. President,
    Nigeria does not have a government at the moment, it is just you and a handful of arid clowns truly messing up what is supposed to be a government of Nigeria. Your VP Osinbajo, walked out on you because you allowed a lowly Gov. El-Rufai to insult him for daring to contribute to governance. You have ignored the APC Party platform that propelled you to the honor of leading Nigeria by not consulting other stalwarts of the party in arrogant believe you know it all. Well, I listened to your stuttering speech in New York and it’s quite a departure from your speech at the Chatham House in London, clear proof and evidence that more heads are better than one. One day to end of Sept. yet, no ministers and no policy direction in any of the three major sectors a government is judged by: Economy, Foreign Policy, Security…etc. The result is the fiasco in New York where you not only missed major appointments with important world leaders, your lack of appointing replacements for Ambassadors you recalled two months ago was why you had to walk to the UN and back to your hotel, no embassy cars and no envoys to lead you through the right doors into corridors of power. This has been a tough learning experience but with minor adjustments, I believe you can still get it right. Damn! you have no choice but to get it right… we need capable hands to guide you, not sycophants and Lilliputian politicians like Oshiomonkey and el-Rufai misbehaving around you. While at it, get rid of the Ota Gorilla, Nigeria does not need an Assistant President in Obasanjo loitering around your every move. Get serious, Sir!

    • Mike

      lol @ Ota Gorilla. It is a shame the old man wants to always stay in the limelight. OBJ is an attention seeker. If he really does possess any ideas, initiatives or insights-with respect to governance- one would wonder why he did not implement them during his own Presidency( full 8 yrs with no commas).

  • burning spear

    We pleaded with the Yoruba elites not to allow Buhari go near Aso Rock-But they refused to heed our pleas because of the greed of some few Yorubas such as Obj–Soyinka– Falana–and the Father of all lies Tinubu—–We relied on the history of the Fulanis-as it affects El Rufai–Atiku–Ribadu–Ciroma Dr. Junaid ati Buharis past misdeeds to warn them–but like the fly that refused-to accept the pleas of the wise–and was buried with the corpse——the Yorubas said NAY——-The Yorubas would soon realise that Abiola did not sacrifice his life for d Yorubas to install Buhari as presidents of Nigeria via the CIA-that aided the North to kill him–abiola ati kudirat—99.9 percent of the oil blocks in Nigeria are owned by the untouchable Fulani Emirs—–So far those from whom the oil revenue–they stole have been recovered from are from the Fulani North–Aka Abacha—Rilwanu Lukman– Jubril Aminu–Danjuma-and IBB are the owners of oil blocks-including madam Alakija—Not Ijaws–It was Buhari who said Abacha did not steal my oil revenue–so what is he talking about in New York’ again?-If an Ijaw man had refused to appoint Ministers for 3 months every Yoruba PhD holder in Nigeria- would have been hired to smear Jonathan for the Fulanis-If Jonathan had slept off and was not able to attend an event slated to discuss the boko haram war-at the UN-every media house would have been mobilized to haunt d soul of Ijaw man Jonathan—I often laugh when people talk about Buhari being clean–look he is as dirty as the head of the drug cartel in Mexico–There are two things that often occupy the mind of Buhari–how to acquire more oil blocks–for his Fulani tribesmen—ati the Emirs–and how to lie his way through the hearts and minds of Nigerians—Buhari has blown away 4.8 trillion Naira within 3 months–And is now asking for more money–from d Senate—–Saraki will certainly oblige him having cowed him to submission-separation is the only answer to our 54 yrs old woes—not the rule of the Fulanis ati Yorubas—It is a complete disaster–

    • Julius

      Otile, who the hell are you to be telling the Yorubas anything ?. You need to convene an Ndigbo meetings and get yourself right 1st. THe Yorubas are better than your loser clowns, we do not need anything from you. You were ranting about the republic of SS ati SE for the past one year but, you have nothing to show for it. I told your loser ass that SS do not want anything to do with you. You believe me now ?Fix your biafra republic and stop worrying about the Yorubas. We are okay.

          • Julius

            hahahaha, you are a funny moron !

      • Unfortunately, almost every news article becomes a good reason for Nigerians to tell themselves how different they are from each other, how one tribe is better than the other. What progress can ever be made if we, especially the youths are this way? Even if BURNING SPEAR or any other Nigerian attempts to lure us into tribal arguments, we need not bite the bait. We must avoid arguing along tribal lines when replying these tribal loyalists.
        For goodness’ sake, We’re Nigerians. Biafra does not exist. Why cry over a country which responsible citizens themselves surrendered (without defeat) to the Nigerian state? These responsible men saw the mistake in the Biafra idea and they gave up. According to Gowon and other reliable Nigerians, they weren’t defeated, they simply gave way for common sense, and subjected themselves as loyal citizens to our great nation Nigeria.
        I doubt if anyone alive during the civil war would love to experience another Biafra. It takes only the inexperienced or less-read youth to desire the events of Biafra in our time. But I say to these youths: the men who surrendered to Nigeria weren’t weak, they weren’t defeated, they saw the senselessness of the Biafra idea and that was why they surrendered. They wholeheartedly supported Nigeria even till their death (for those now dead). So why fight to bring back what they repudiated?

        I’M A NIGERIAN.

        WE ARE NIGERIANS.

      • Otile

        This is tragic. At first I thought this @julius dunce was suffering from mere stupidity. Clearly Alzheimer has compounded his stupidity. He can no longer differentiate between Otile and his friend deri orbuka. He is now confusing deri orbuka with Otile. Pathetic.

      • Rumournaire

        Must you always use uncouth language to respond to those you disagree with? C’mon, education is more than grammar. I read posts by you and a few others like you, and it seems you know nothing about decency in discourse. You turn every thread into a forum for abusive language, tribal and sectional attacks. This is really shameful. I don’t care how much education you have. You can have a hundred PhD’s from Havard; your language in these fora is a disgrace to education. Yes, disagree with people. You can even attack their views, but please, learn some decency.

        I would be surprised if you do not respond to this my post with your usual gutter language. But if you step back and think and mend your ways, I would be most delighted. But get this clear, you will not draw me into a diatribe in this forum.

        • Wähala

          I thought you the phrase, “gutter language” when I responded to Doyin Okupe’s call me “attack lion” article, it has since gone viral… so there are things to be gleaned from my comments. I also first used the phrase, “my language is my prerogative” in response to a similar comment like yours by one @Mrs. Tanwa Bello Martins, to explain that harsh lingua is needed to fend off online miscreants… that word, ‘prerogative’ has also been abused lately. Do me a favor, stop reading or responding to my comments. As you can see, today is Sallah, one more misconduct from you and you will have your eyeballs bulging with expletives from me… Bestens!

          • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

            it is perplexing that some find indecent language more troubling than hate speeches and comments!

            These larkeys find nothing wrong with the fact that the lunatics they serve and defend never write anything that is not geared towards bloodshed and violence. They are always sowing seeds of discords, hopelessly trying to pitch the Yoruba’s against the Hausas in their moronic attempt to do what?, we wonder.

            You have already said it. If they don’t like your language, they should not read your comments!
            The only thing we would have added is to inform them that what delights them, how it delights them, and why it delights them does not concern us. If they ever feel delighted about something we did, they should know it was unintentional.

          • Wähala

            There is rich Egba history behind that phrase I’ve never written about… But, go research the article there on Sahara Reporters where Doyin Okupe said to call him attack lion and read my comment on it if you dare… if that’s what your question mark is about. I didn’t invent the line, old Mama Bisi in 70’s Lagos did and it caught on… take it, or leave it!

          • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

            The questions mark simply represents a withdrawal of our initial comment supporting you which partly says: “You said it yourself. If they don’t like your comment, they should not read it/”

            It went on to ask you to tell Rumournaire that you are not here to delight him and if anything you do gives him delight, he should know that it was not intentional.

          • Wähala

            Thanks… Respect!
            Good to learn from great minds, that why I’m here. Mucho Grazie!

    Igbo Woman Responsible For Buhari Sleep off For UN Meetings. – Buhari Aides.
    **Even before this incident, Amb Ogwu has been marked to be sacked by OBJ’s candidate, Hon Abike Dabiri and 2 Others.
    **Was it not the same Buhari’s sleeping problem that caused APC’s anointed candidate the Senate President
    President Muhammadu Buhari have successfully made his government as a government of accusations, blames and one that refuses to take responsibility of its actions and inaction.
    Like Buhari’s previous overseas visit, the current trip to New York for the UN General Assembly (UNGA) Meeting have ended in controversy and another embarrassment to Nigeria.
    President Buhari missing two crucial meeting in the UNGA as a result of his not been able to wake up early and his scheduled was planned and controlled by the Daura cabals instead of the Nigerian Permanent mission at the UN.
    On the Pope’s meeting, the truth is the President was not available but the team was ready.
    He actually almost did not want to attend when he eventually woke up, but senior officials of the Mission impressed it on him to attend but by the time he got there the session had already commenced” and the UN security prevented him from entering the meeting venue as the Pope has already started speaking.
    The two meetings missed by Buhari exposes his government’s lack of a proper team to the UNGA and their ignorantly sidelining the Professionals at our Permanent Mission.
    One wonders why Buhari and his Aides will be blaming Amb Joy Ogwu, the Nigerian Permanent Representative to the United Nations, whose office was not given the free hand by the Daura cabals to manage Buhari’s schedule at the Meeting.
    It is certain that her role as Nigerians Permanent Representative to the UN did not cover her monitoring and waking Buhari up from sleep or getting him ready for meetings.
    Even before this incident, the career diplomat, Mrs Joy Ogwu has been marked to be replaced by Obasanjo’s candidate, Hon Abike Dabiri.
    Buhari’s embarrassment in the US was caused by his aides and the Cabals that drafted his schedule in Nigeria and refused to allow the Permanent Mission office to organise his schedules. Like other Nigerians experts and professionals sacked by Buhari and replaced by his relatives, there must be a cooked up event to give meaning to their grand plans.
    Was it not the same Buhari’s sleeping problem that caused APC’s anointed candidate the Senate President and triggered the witch-hunting Sen Bukol Saraki today? –

    • burning spear

      Buhari chewed it into shreds-the thing is Buhari is a lair–the USA never made any such promise–Buhari is the biggest liar on earth–he is just playing on the sentiments of Nigerians-with his daily lies about fighting corruption when he roams about with thieves like Amaechi-Tinubu –Kwankawso–and Fayemi—at the Lamordi who has been selling crude oil seized in the Niger delta via Ghana–As president Buhari was never supposed to discuss such matters as corruption at the UN-we have corruption in the USA and China—-The person who stole my oil revenue and took it to Switzerland was Abacha whom he served with all his heart–so who is Buhari fooling?

      • Ifeanyi Nwoko

        Who is Buhari fooling?? Obviously, about 50% of Nigerians. I would say he is doing VERY WELL at this. This is why it’s easy to rule Africans, we cannot think.

        • Burbank

          And it’s easy to rule Americans.

          • Ifeanyi Nwoko

            Really? How? What country is ruling America? Even when they need something from another country, they make it seem like they’re the ones doing you a favor. Nigerians (and other African leaders) will quickly run to America/Europe when summoned and leave with deals that are NOT mutually beneficial. This is not a dig on Buhari, it’s just what we do as Blacks, always get the short end of the deal. This is why the Chinese, Indians, etc are having their way with us. And what do we get in exchange?

          • Burbank

            Dangote?

          • Ifeanyi Nwoko

            Did you just say Dangote? We are still foolishly parading this man but saying we want to fight corruption. Please name a responsible country today that will allow a Dangote to exist. Illegal coersive monopoly backed by favorable deals by the government. This gives him the ability to illegally drive prices so low and operate at a “loss” keeping competitors out, then being able to spike prices and gouge consumers. How is this good for the economy? Next.

      • Ifeanyi Nwoko

        PS, I posted this on a Vanguard article yesterday regarding the “list”. I agree that there was never a list.

        “…Yeah, about that “list”. Not sure why Buhari chooses to play games with Nigerian citizens. The rest of the world does not work like Nigeria.

        If a US bank account gives up my confidential information to a 3rd party without my consent, it’s called a lawsuit. There are privacy laws that protect me.

        Now, if a case/investigation is is underway against me, the FBI will STILL need to provide bank with subpoena approved by a judge, for my bank records. If these records are gotten illegitimately, they ruin their case, no matter how guilty I am.

        For Obama to have a “list” of corrupt Nigerians, means that he would have gone into their accounts to see what was in there without any just cause, except them being Nigerian. This is an invasion of privacy which the Obama administration clearly doesn’t want any part of, considering all the allegations of spying they’re doing on there own citizens. And then, if this were actually the case, no matter how much these Nigerians may have stolen, the more significant issue would be why the US was spying on all Nigerian officials to know who was guilty. This should not be cause for celebration, but a diplomatic nightmare.

        My Nigerians, these leaders of ours are not smarter than we are. I’m not saying to be a conspiracy theorist, but we need to think more critically with the information given to us…”

          In matters of “national security,” the US president is untouchable even by the US Supreme Court.

          Ask Bush , and Obama is more-Bush than Bush himself.

          • Ifeanyi Nwoko

            Explain an instance where the president has not been checked. Have they not tried to use national security to spy on emails and phone records? Are they not justifying use of drones currently? If they had a blank check in terms of national security, the will not be hiding in doing what they’re doing. I await your response though…

          • Burbank

            “Are they not justifying use of drones currently”?
            Justifying with who? The defendants?

            How many times had the US used drones to kill “terrorists” without a court judgement to determine if those “terrorists” are innocent or guilty?
            How many court ordered have Obama received to kill those “terrorists?”

          • Ifeanyi Nwoko

            Ok, we are discussing citizens here, as I inferred initially. Clearly, the detainees in Guantanamo Bay don’t have the same rights as those in the US. So, I’m still waiting for an instance on where the president has gone unchecked.

      Saraki was number 1 on that list

      • Ifeanyi Nwoko

        Lolol. I hear you bro. List of one person. What happened to his wife? Did she not go through a similar futile exercise that got you people excited? No results. I also thought that Buhari is claiming not to be behind allegations on Saraki. Which one should we believe?

        Also, if Buhari has to go all the way to America to find out Saraki is corrupt, information the entire country already knows…no comment.

        • Burbank

          It’s called “due process.”

          • Ifeanyi Nwoko

            Due process? Let’s see, Saraki failed to list all his assets and he is being given the gauntlet. Buhari tells us that he has land somewhere in PH, that he is still trying to find, and that passes the test. Come on folks. I’m not a fan of Saraki, but we need to be objective here.

            The same people that cleared Saraki years ago are now finding his filing illegitimate. Is this not similar to Buhari filing for presidency, but not being able to produce certificate? Your likes were the same ones that asked why he had been cleared in previous years.

            The rules seem to change for Buhari depending on which side he is on.

    We pleaded with the Yoruba elites not to allow Buhari go near Aso Rock-But they refused to heed our pleas because of the greed of some few Yorubas such as Obj–Soyinka– Falana–and the Father of all lies Tinubu—–We relied on the history of the Fulanis-as it affects El Rufai–Atiku–Ribadu–Ciroma Dr. Junaid ati Buharis past misdeeds to warn them–but like the fly that refused-to accept the pleas of the wise–and was buried with the corpse——the Yorubas said NAY——-The Yorubas would soon realise that Abiola did not sacrifice his life for d Yorubas to install Buhari as presidents of Nigeria via the CIA-that aided the North to kill him–abiola ati kudirat—99.9 percent of the oil blocks in Nigeria are owned by the untouchable Fulani Emirs—–So far those from whom the oil revenue–they stole have been recovered from are from the Fulani North–Aka Abacha—Rilwanu Lukman– Jubril Aminu–Danjuma-and IBB are the owners of oil blocks-including madam Alakija—Not Ijaws–It was Buhari who said Abacha did not steal my oil revenue–so what is he talking about in New York’ again?-If an Ijaw man had refused to appoint Ministers for 3 months every Yoruba PhD holder in Nigeria- would have been hired to smear Jonathan for the Fulanis-If Jonathan had slept off and was not able to attend an event slated to discuss the boko haram war-at the UN-every media house would have been mobilized to haunt d soul of Ijaw man Jonathan—I often laugh when people talk about Buhari being clean–look he is as dirty as the head of the drug cartel in Mexico–There are two things that often occupy the mind of Buhari–how to acquire more oil blocks–for his Fulani tribesmen—ati the Emirs–and how to lie his way through the hearts and minds of Nigerians—Buhari has blown away 4.8 trillion Naira within 3 months–And is now asking for more money–from d Senate—–Saraki will certainly oblige him having cowed him to submission-separation is the only answer to our 54 yrs old woes—not the rule of the Fulanis ati Yorubas—It is a complete disaster

      You are just a frustrated Biafra crusader. Biafra died long time ago, don’t allow that frustration to kill you too. If you are that wise, skillful, smart and powerful go ahead to do your wish of breaking away from Nigeria. Stop relying on the people you are coursing to help you out. Frustrated soul.

    Now that’s what I called THE President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
    God bless Nigeria.

    • Uzoma

      I think the call was a really good one. I am hoping, though, that Nigeria, in particular Nigeria under Buhari, will do enough to recover Nigeria’s stolen wealth invested right here in Nigeria under our noses and used daily to subvert our democratic process.

      • Burbank

        gbam…
        For Buhari to admit the enormity of the problem of corruption in Nigeria, the herculean task of recovering Nigeria’s stolen wealth and the international tentacles of the corruption hydra, in front of a global audience, at the UN General Assembly no less, takes nerves of steel and balls of iron.
        God bless Nigeria

    @bensony:disqus

    Muhammadu Buhari should go home and do justice to the child hawking on the streets,
    and to the millions rendered into beggars by the like of RAJI FASHOLA who abused his
    office to steal 25 plots of land in Lekki on the 26th of May this year, and, by the example
    of Goodluck Jonathan who along with his criminal accomplice JIDE OMOKORE pocketed
    $4.5 billion due due back to the treasury. A political system that allows such highly criminal
    thefts is NOT worth preserving by the international community.
