British Prime Minister Theresa May Visits Nigeria  British Prime Minister, Theresa May, visited Nigeria for the first time ever on Wednesday, August 2018. The Prime Minister, who had been in South Africa the day before, where she met with President Cyril Ramaphosa, is embarking on her first-ever official trip to some Sub-Saharan African countries. While in Nigeria, she held talks with President Buhari about the welfare of the country and about the upcoming elections. On the elections, President Buhari said, “I assure you that I’m all out for free, fair, and credible elections. I’m very pleased that my party is doing very well”. “The High Commissioner will brief you more.  The recent successes in polls in Kastina, Bauchi, and Jos have boosted our morale greatly. Nigeria has accepted multiparty democracy and that is putting politicians on their toes, forcing them to work harder,” stated the president. The President acknowledged the UK government for their support for the anti-corruption campaign in Nigeria. “We had great opportunities and resources between 1999 and 2014, due to high oil prices. But when we came in 2015, oil prices plunged to as low as 37 dollars per barrel. “What we have been doing since 2015 is to focus on infrastructure development, despite low earnings. Work is ongoing in roads, rail, power, and many others.” He said. The President also commended Britain for its role in aiding the country in its fight against insurgency in the North-East. During the meeting, Nigeria and Britain signed a security and defence partnership, and an Economic Development Forum Agreement.
