President Muhammadu Buhari will today depart Abuja for an official visit to Britain where he is expected to hold discussions on Nigeria – British relations with Prime Minister Theresa May, prior to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings (CHOGM) scheduled for April 18-20, 2018.
The President will also meet the Chief Executive Officer of Royal Dutch Plc, Mr. Ben van Beurden, in connection with Shell and other partners’ plan to invest $15b in Nigeria’s oil industry.
A statement signed by Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, last night, said: “These investment ventures will lay the foundation for the next 20 years production and domestic gas supply, bringing with it all the attendant benefits both to the economy and the wider society.”
The statement further said President Buhari is due to renew discussions with the Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Rev. and Rt. Hon. Justin Welby, a good friend of the President on inter-religious harmony in Nigeria and world-wide.
Further meetings have also been scheduled for the President to see some prominent British and Nigerians residing in Britain, the statement said.
