Theresa May, British Prime Minister, has stated that she had an excellent time in Nigeria and hopes to see increased trade and investment between the two countries.
May has stated this at the Presidential Wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja on Wednesday in Lagos, shortly before departing the country at 8:10 p.m.
She said: “I was in Abuja and also in Lagos to see the thriving business community here.
“We want to see increased trade between Nigeria and UK, increased investment, bringing jobs here in Nigeria, jobs in the UK.
“This will be good for both countries and I have had an excellent time in Nigeria, and I am very pleased to be here today.”
Lagos State Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode, who was at the airport to see her off, said: “She has visited Abuja earlier in the day.
“The important part of this visit was discussion on how investment in Lagos can be improved by British investors.
“We realise that Lagos is the commercial capital of Nigeria and a whole lot of British investment are domiciled in Lagos.”
