British Prime Minister Theresa May was received at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, accompanied by his deputy, among other state officials.

Upon her arrival aboard a Royal Air Force aircraft, Ms May and Mr Ambode held a brief meeting at the presidential wing of the airport, discussing trade and business-related issues.

In addition to meeting with business leaders, a visit to Salvation Army Headquarters in Lagos, Mrs May also met with some victims of modern day slavery.

NAN-TV reports that the prime minister’s visit to Lagos comes barely eight weeks after French President, Emmanuel Macron, visited the African Shrine in Ikeja, Lagos.

Ms May had earlier met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the New Banquet Hall of the State House in Abuja.

Ms May’s visit to Nigeria is part of her tour of some Africa countries in an attempt to bolster Britain’s post-Brexit fortunes.

It is her first visit to sub-Saharan Africa since she became Prime Minister in 2016.
