President Buhari held a Bilateral Meeting with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, at the International Anti-Corruption Summit in London

Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has said that the United Kingdom has shown extra commitment towards the recovery of looted funds from Nigeria.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari and UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron held a bilateral meeting during the International Anti-corruption Summit in London.

Malami made the statement on Sunday in a telephone interview with PUNCH newspapers. He said:

There were no sideline talks as such, but then there has been a bilateral meeting, other than the conference, in which express commitment has been shown by the leadership of the UK towards the idea of loot recovery.

The UK has shown extra commitment apart from the resolution that was unanimously passed at the conference. Nigeria was treated as a priority in terms of execution of such commitment.

This is not something that we are exclusively in control of, but honestly there is a great goodwill and great commitment working mutually. So, very soon, Nigeria will start reaping the benefit.
