On September 18, 2018 17 Comments

The British government has made it clear that the recent visit of the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, is not an endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari or any other candidate.

Laura Beaufils, the British Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria, said this in her address, at an interactive session organised for journalists by the commission in Lagos.

Beaufils also restated the UK government’s commitment to spending £47.4million on Deepening Democracy in Nigeria Programme Phase 2 (DDiN2).

Speaking on UK’s role in deepening democracy in partnership with Nigeria, she insisted that the British government had no intention to influence the outcome of the 2019 general election.

“It is important to stress that the recent visit of the Prime Minister, Theresa May, to Nigeria was not an endorsement of support for the president or any candidate in the election next year,” Beaufils said.

In August, British Prime Minister May, visited Nigeria, as part of a three-nation tour of Africa.

She held a closed door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

    There is nothing impossible with the Brits, they’re the lunatics who made this inconvenient marriage in this hell hole called Nigeria, a country where an animal is more valued than the life of a man, a country where the head of government has no waec rather paid so many lawyers to defend his lack of certificate, a country where mediocre n morons rule. Look Britain just watch your back

    UK are liars……… you gave Buhari money for his re-election , why not bring the 47.4 Million pounds since to Nigeria? Why is it now that the election is fast approaching that you remember to give money to Nigeria?
