- Theresa May says she hopes to see increased trade between Nigeria and UK

- The UK prime minister not the thriving business in Nigeria

- She said better relationship will be good for both countries

British Prime Minister, Theresa May, says she had an excellent time in Nigeria and hopes to see increased trade and investment between Nigeria and the UK.

She spoke with newsmen at the Presidential Wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja on Wednesday in Lagos, shortly before departing the country at 8:10 p.m.

“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 here in Nigeria, and I am very pleased to be here today,” she told newsmen.

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, who was at the airport to see her off, said the important visit centered on improving investment in the state and the country in general.

“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,” he said.

The governor said they spoke about how to improve investment planning and what Lagos has been doing to attract investors.

“We having been doing a lot of judicial sector reforms and security sector reforms and she is pleased with the progress we are making in Lagos.

“She is ready to complement our efforts by opening up export credit facility and also with development finance to some of the things that we are doing in Lagos,” he said.

Ambode said the discussion also centred around boosting technology and improving infrastructure and the creative industry.

“We spoke about things related to technology, infrastructure and also the creative industry.”

On the relationship between Lagos and Britain, Ambode said: “we need to make sure that a whole lot of British investment is coming to Lagos. She is willing to do more with us.

“You know, Lagos in 1861 was a British colony. The history has been so long, so, we also need to reactivate that,” Ambode said.

NAN reports that the state government, in a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Habib Aruna, shed more light on Ambode’s discussion with May.

Ambode, according to the statement, said that much of Nigerian education, cultural and political systems were influenced by Britain and there were more Nigerians living in the UK than elsewhere in the world.

The governor said that Lagos remained a place of choice for British investors, especially given that stability in the government, the size of Lagos economy and population, as well as the particular focus of his administration on the rule of law and justice sector reform.

He also said that it would be of particular importance to Lagos State if British investors could explore the various opportunities that exist in the State in the areas of energy, technology, export finance, infrastructure and the creative industry.

“So, we spoke about how we can improve the investment climate in Lagos and then the other parts of what Lagos has been doing to attract investors.

“You know we have been doing a lot in judicial sector reforms and security sector reforms and the Prime Minister was pleased with the progress that we are making in Lagos and ready to complement our efforts by opening up export credit facility and development finance to some of the things that we are doing in Lagos State.”

The Governor expressed optimism in the strengthening of the relationship between Britain and Lagos and avowed that his administration would do whatever it takes to achieve that goal.

According to the statement, May, on her part, said that export credit finance to the tune of 750 million pounds sterling, as well as a considerable development finance was available, which Lagos State could look towards.

She also spoke about the role that British could play in the development of the technology industry in Lagos given the particular capability of the UK in that area.

The British Prime Minister also noted the special strength of the London City as a financial hub that could be of considerable importance for Lagos State, just as she emphasized sustainability and growth in Britain/Lagos relationship.

Finally, she expressed the desire of the British government to assist Lagos in the development of her creative industry and alluded to the fact that the jacket she was wearing when she met with the Governor was actually made in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the United Kingdom says it has repatriated to Nigeria, 70 million pounds recovered from a Nigerian convict who was found guilty of fraud by an Italian court.

British High commissioner Paul Arkwright, ahead of Prime minister, Theresa May’s visit to the country, said more funds would be repatriated from the UK to Nigeria.

Brexit has pushed Theresa May to go various parts of the world looking for business deals for UK, in the case of hard Brexit.

Nigeria should be negotiating on ease of doing business with UK in respect to exports of Agricultural produce, etc.

Is quite unfortunate that many animals and zombies in the zoo is jumping up that the demon of Britain visited them at the expense of the actual reason why she visited 3 African countries in 3 consecutive days. They foolishly believe it is for their good. The truth is that the British demon is leveling the ground economically for their imminent landing from EU Brexit. Nigeria in their resources have been effectively sustaining many countries economically of which Britain has the largest opportunity in' of which some other countries tarp from as Nigeria's colonial masters. Now Britain wants to opt-out from EU which is very imminent, now when they are finally out from EU, Nigeria would have been their only investment for their economical sustainability by virtue of being the colonial masters of Nigeria. Now Nigeria is not a member of EU and can decide not to trade their oil and products with the European countries courtesy of British underhand mechanization. If the British demon truly cares for the welfare of Nigeria, why is she ignoring the predicaments and decimation of a section of the country of where the oil is coming from? Why does she insist on the forceful unity of Nigeria? The four countries that made up Britain are all independent from one another and they enjoy their freedom, mind you, the population of Nigeria is far higher than the entire Britain. So why force us to remain together if they don't have special interest in what they are getting from the fraudulent and forceful unity of Nigeria? In the picture below, they have renewed their contracts and colonial tied to Nigeria, but some people are jumping up, you have been effectively been sustained in colonial slavery, but in all this, we shall come victorious as Biafra must be restored.

“We want to see increased trade between Nigeria and UK, increased investment, bringing jobs here in Nigeria, jobs in the UK."

Meaning "we want to see more UK businesses take advantage of you guys and exploit you"

“This will be good for both countries"
Means "it will be very good for UK"

" I have had an excellent time in here in Nigeria, and I am very pleased to be here today,”
Meaning "I got exactly what I wanted. Things went according to my plans"

I will vote for a lifeless PMB over a group of looters called PDP...Whether PMB wins or not, let my conscience be clear that I voted for him, I believe in him, cos he might be slow, he might not be as active as people want him to be, but he didn't steal our money. Whether now or in future, Nigerians will come to realise that PMB means well for Nigeria.

For Ambode to say the bolded part, that means we have a very long way to go before we can liberate ourselves from the clutches of the western world.
They got us in this mess but we chose to stay in this mess.
Too bad Ambode is still a mental Slave. Despite all the education and wealthy, he’s still a slave to the white man!!!
