British Prime Minister Theresa May Arrives In Nigeria
British Prime Minister Theresa May has arrived in Nigeria, as part of her visit to some African countries.
Shortly after her arrival on Wednesday, May proceeded to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Issues to be discussed at the meeting include the security challenges in the country, economy, as well as the 2019 general elections among others.
Prior to the visit, the British PM was in South Africa where she decried the poverty rate in Africa and the activities of terrorist organisations.
She had also described Nigeria as “home to more poor people than any other nation in the world,” despite thriving as a country.
The Presidency had disclosed that President Buhari and May would sign vital defence and economic agreements involving Nigeria and the UK.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had also urged the British PM to visit other parts of the country to access the performance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government.
