Trump stated this when both leaders were addressing a press conference after their meeting in the White House.
Nigeria has a reputation for very massive corruption. I also know that the President (Buhari) has been able to cut that down very substantially. We talked about that, he is working on it and they have made a lot of progress and I think they will continue to make a lot of progress,” Trump said.
The US President said with the progress the Buhari administration is making in the corruption, investors from the US would want to do business in Nigeria.
“We have a lot of people in this country that invests in Nigeria, so cutting down on that corruption element and a corrupt element is very important to us and the President (Buhari) will be able to do that,” he added.
