Archbishop of Canterbury visits Buhari in London

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, met with ailing Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari in London on Friday.

The visit was confirmed in a statement by Buhari’s spokesperson, Mr. Femi Adesina. He said:

“The cleric pledged to continue praying for both President Buhari and Nigeria. In his response, the Nigerian president thanked Archbishop 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.

“It will be recalled that when former British prime minister, David Cameron described Nigeria as a ‘fantastically corrupt’ country ahead of an anti-corruption summit in London in 2016, Archbishop Welby had retorted: ‘But this particular President (Buhari) is actually not corrupt’,” he added.

This is the second time Archbishop Welby is visiting Buhari. His last visit was in March.
