Developed countries reluctant to assist us because they think we are rich – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari says some developed countries are reluctant to assist Nigeria because they have “wrong assumptions” that the nation is rich.
According to a statement by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, Buhari said this on Thursday while receiving letters of credence from the newly appointed diplomats of Kuwait, India and Namibia in Abuja.
The president told Abdulaziz Al Bisher, ambassador of Kuwait, that Nigeria has been “pigeonholed as an influential and wealthy member” of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
“Nigeria’s continuous support of Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) policies, sometimes, discourages assistance from developed countries, with wrong assumptions that the country is rich,” the statement read.
He added that Nigeria will “appreciate support in education, technology, infrastructure and projects that directly impact on livelihood of people”.
