In line with the aim of his journey to the United States of America, President Muhammadu Buhari has began talks with United States Secretary of State, John Kerry.
President Buhari travelled to the USA on Wednesday, March 30, to attend the Nuclear Security Summit, which also has in attendance about 60 different world leaders.
John Kerry in a joint conference with Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffery Onyeama, declared the United State government’s readiness to support the Buhari-led administration war against corruption.
President Muhammadu Buhari, during his own press conference, said he would have to peruse the 2016 budget proposals whenever the National Assembly sends him the details he requested.
Buhari said he will critically review the 2016 Appropriation Bill passed by the National Assembly before assenting to it.
“Some bureaucrats removed what we put in the proposal and replaced it with what they wanted. I have to look at the bill that has been passed by the National Assembly, ministry by ministry, to be sure that what has been brought back for me to sign is in line with our original submission.”
He added that his administration will continue to prosecute the war against corruption.
“It will greatly help our country if you assist us to recover all our stolen funds which we can establish to be within your financial system”, Buhari told Kerry.
