President Muhammadu Buhari visits Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at the Lambert Palace in the United Kingdom

President Muhammadu Buhari visited UK recently for an anti-corruption meeting which unfortunately saw UK Prime Minister David Cameron making discrediting remarks about Nigeria and calling Nigeria a "fantastically corrupt" nation.  In the video, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, defended the President saying that he was not corrupt.

President Buhari took time out to visit the Archbishop at Lambeth Palace. Here are some of the pictures posted on the Archbishop's Facebook page.





















This is what the Archbishop said about the visit:

It was a great honour to welcome the President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari to Lambeth Palace in London this morning.

It's a rare day at Lambeth Palace when we do not pray for Nigeria, the largest country in Africa, which has a very large Anglican Church. We pray for President Buhari and for all those both in government and in opposition.

We pray for the poor in Nigeria and for those who have suffered over the last number of years from the violence that has plagued the country, which President Buhari has been tackling so determinedly since he first took office.

Nigeria is a country which has more promise, more opportunity, more potential than anywhere else that I know in many continents, not just in Africa. Its people are so intelligent, so full of energy, so full of commitment, that when Nigerians work together, the world – not just Africa – is affected by that beneficially.

So we continue to pray for the potential and future of this land to be a place that has a profound effect for good on our world, and demonstrates what is possible to be achieved.

Here is a video of President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari arriving at Lambeth Palace in London to meet with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
