President Muhammadu Buhari is currently playing host to the British Prime Minister Theresa May.
She arrived the Aso Villa at about 1pm on Wednesday and was received by President Muhammadu Buhari and other government officials.
The visit is part of her African trip where she is scheduled to meet leaders of selected sub-Saharan countries – South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya. She was in South Africa on Tuesday and had met with President Cyril Ramaphosa.
While in South Africa, she had decried the poverty levels on the continent stating that Africa has the highest number of poor people in the world. She also said Africa is home to a majority of the world’s fragile states, and a quarter of the world’s displaced people.
“Much of Nigeria is thriving, with many individuals enjoying the fruits of a resurgent economy, yet 87 million Nigerians live below $1 and 90 cents a day, making it home to more very poor people than any other nation in the world,” the UK prime minister said.
Her visit to Nigeria is connected with shoring her country’s trade relations in the face of Brexit economic realities.
