Ojobo Ode Atuluku, ActionAid Nigeria’s Country Director, commenting ahead of the London Anti-Corruption Summit, said:

"David Cameron has a unique opportunity to tackle the UK’s role in enabling the corruption and tax dodging that eats away at countries like Nigeria and hurts the poorest, especially women and girls.

 

“We desperately need new rules to stop tax havens fuelling tax dodging and corruption. My country has called for new rules to publicly reveal who owns shell companies. David Cameron must demand that same transparency from British overseas tax havens which will otherwise continue to fuel tax dodging and provide a safe haven for the corrupt.

“The Anti-Corruption Summit will have failed to meet its own goals if the Prime Minister does not secure publicly accessible registers of beneficial ownership for British overseas tax havens like the British Virgin Islands.”
