Theresa May to visit President Buhari over bilateral business talks

FILE President Muhammadu Buhari with the British Prime Minister Theresa May during the visit of the President to No.10 Downing Street London in London on Monday

The premier, who is now in a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja, will fly to Lagos where she will meet with business leaders and announce the formation of a U.K. -Nigeria fintech partnership.

It made the plea on Tuesday in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan.

Theresa May's first-ever official visit to South Africa may have been a success in terms of bilateral trade linkage but social media veered off to something else it found for its daily mockery: the British PM's obviously awkward dance moves.

British Prime Minister Theresa May urged Nigeria on Wednesday to tap into the City of London's financial expertise as she sought to build a new trading relationship with Africa's biggest economy and most populous nation.

Mrs May will discuss security, trade and people trafficking with President Muhammadu Buhari before meeting victims of modern slavery in Lagos.

UNITED States President Donald Trump called Muhammadu Buhari, his Nigerian counterpart, "lifeless", according to a new report by Financial Times, a famous global daily newspaper headquartered in London.

The party also accused the government of obstructing the supremacy of the rule of law and as violating the human rights of some citizens.

Britain also is opening new embassies in Niger and Chad and expanding its embassy in Mali, calling it support to countries "on the front line of instability" as West Africa's vast, arid Sahel is threatened by a number of extremist groups with shifting allegiances.

The Prime Minister on Thursday is expected in Nairobi, where she will meet President Uhuru Kenyatta and see British soldiers training troops from Kenya and other African countries in the techniques needed to identify and destroy improvised explosive devices before they go to fight Al-Shabaab in Somalia.

Asked if she would consider taking part in Strictly Come Dancing, Mrs May said: 'I think the chances of [them] coming calling are pretty minimal'.

Talks usually took place at a technical level between civil servants - Olly Robbins, the prime minister's Brexit advisor, on the United Kingdom side and Sabine Weyand, Barnier's deputy, for the EU.

"We are determined to work side by side with Nigeria to help them fight terrorism, reduce conflict and lay the foundations for the future stability and prosperity that will benefit us all", she said.

In response to questions, May endorsed South African President Cyril Ramaphosa's controversial land reform plans.

Brussels is willing to offer Britain an unprecedented trade deal, the likes of which it has not agreed with any other country, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator said yesterday.

May welcomed the assurance by the Nigerian government on credible elections in 2019.
