The Spanish government has expressed support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s war against corruption.
This was disclosed on Friday, October 16, 2015, by the Spanish Ambassador to Nigeria, Alfonso Barnuevo, during a ceremony to mark the National Day of Spain in Abuja.
“President Buhari and His Majesty, the King of Spain, held a meeting in New York on Sept. I, 2014, and I can only qualify the meeting as excellent for our relations,” Barnuevo said.
“A solid and prosperous Nigeria is important to Spain; the political stability obtained after election will contribute to enhance the sustainable development and growth of Nigeria.
The government of Spain has picked confidence in the economic reforms of President Buhari and his anti-corruption campaign; solid policies are important to attract investors,” he added.
Buhari has vowed to end corruption in the country and has enlisted the help of foreign governments to achieve the feat.
