The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, on Friday paid a personal visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at Abuja House, London.

The Archbishop and President Buhari are friends, who share deep respect for each other.

Mr. Welby said he was delighted to see the rapid recovery Mr. Buhari has made from his health challenges, noting that it was a testimony to the healing powers of God, and answer to prayers of millions of people round the world.

The cleric pledged to continue praying for both Mr. Buhari and Nigeria.

In his response, the Nigerian president thanked Mr. Welby, whom he noted had always stood by him at critical times, and wished him God’s continued grace in his spiritual duty of leading the Anglican Communion worldwide.

When former British Prime Minister, David Cameron described Nigeria as a “fantastically corrupt” country ahead of an anti-corruption summit in London in 2016, Mr. Welby had retorted: “But this particular President (Buhari) is actually not corrupt.”

The archbishop later personally received the Nigerian president at Lambeth Palace, London, and had also paid a goodwill visit to Mr. Buhari in March this year, during his medical vacation.

      Mor0n, are the governors who were there last two weeks Russians ?


    Buhari wore a cap to Church in the picture.

    Anyways, this Anglican Church Leader has ZERO credibility, he is part of the cabal colonizing Nigeria, picking our leaders, setting prices for our products, dividing our people.

    May God thwart all their evil plans, Amen!

    God give and take life!
    “Death is a NECESSARY END it would come when it’s supposed to come”.
    The abusive languages has now transcend beyond Nigeria.
    Abusing and names calling of Archbishop Welby regrettably raised some questions , indeed unfortunate.

    …and the block and dumb heads we have in power have no clue how Nigeria can industrialize and compete favourably with Europe and America. For all they care we black men CAN NEVER be able to make a plane or Jet fighter. So they import Wines, Tooth picks, Matches, Cars, Bullet proof vests, Shoes, Belts, Socks, designer Pants, Wrist Watches, Condoms, bottled Water, Window Blinds, Furniture, Baby Food, Biscuits, etc…and not to forget the deadly GM (Genetically Modified) Foods banned in Europe and America, chief among them being Apples.

    …So the US makes money out of the pitiable Nigerian situation. None of our politicians is smart enough see the trend…and to realize that after every G7 or G8 or G20 meeting so many of the member countries begin to sell Arms to their colonies i.e., enslaved countries led by unthinking dumb and brainless personalities who will even glory and pride in the fact that they are privileged to buy weapons from the Masters. It has no other name, it is called MUMUDITY!

  • Tijani

    Rapid recovery? Since January? Welby is a corrupt liar that went to secretly administer the lasy rites. Buhari should continue fooling himself until he carries Fr Mbaka to London

    • tundemash

      I’m certain you will abuse your father if he visits President Buhari. Your upbringing must have been very traumatic.

      • Julius

        lol@Your upbringing must have been very traumatic…Aaya !!! Bro, you dey funny ooo !

    • Powerlessconscious

      Brain disorder is your problem.

  • Mizch

    We have seen this picture before. May no other Nigerian suffer this unknown sickness of Buhari where he is quarantined and treated with petrodollars, Presidential plane parked at our expense for his prestige.

    • tundemash

      Yeah, you saw the picture in your nightmare but now this is reality.

    • Julius

      Just as was no qualified Doctor to treat Jonathan and his fat hippo wife when they ran to Germany and had 7 surgeries in 7 days. She even died and brought back to life. Remember ?

  • tundemash

    The loudmouth fake christian leaders in Nigeria should learn from this. And lunatic Fayose, put a spin on this.
