PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with British Prime Minister, Theresa May, in 10 Downing Street, London, assuring her that while other Nigerian politicians are already pre-occupied with politics of 2019, he is not bothered by it because he wants to focus on security and economy.

The president, who declared his intention to re-contest the presidential post last week Monday, said: “We have elections next year, politicians are already pre-occupied with the polls, but I am bothered more about security and the economy.”

He recalled that those were the issues he campaigned with, stressing: “We campaigned on three major issues, to secure the country, revive the economy and fight corruption.”


 
According to a statement issued by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President, (Media and Publicity) on Monday, the president noted the long history of cooperation on several fronts between Nigeria and Britain, saying: “People ought to know how they arrived where they are if they would move forward. It was a mistake for us to have stopped the teaching of history as a subject in schools, but we are returning it to the curriculum now.”

He commended British companies like Unilever, Cadbury, and many others, “who have stood with Nigeria through thick and thin. Even when we fought a Civil War, they never left.

“But like Oliver Twist, we ask for more investments. We are encouraging more British companies to come to Nigeria. We appreciate the support you have given in training and equipping our military, particularly in the war against insurgency, but we want to also continue to work with you on trade and investment.”

President Buhari briefed Prime Minister May on the strides in agriculture, which he said has put Nigeria firmly on the road to food self-sufficiency.

“I am very pleased with the successes in agriculture,” he said, adding: “We have cut rice importation by about 90%, made lots of savings of foreign exchange, and generated employment. People had rushed to the cities to get oil money, at the expense of farming. But luckily, they are now going back to the farms. Even professionals are going back to the land. We are making steady progress on the road to food security.”

On education, President Buhari said more investment was being made, because “people can look after themselves if well educated. In this age of technology, education is very important. We need well-staffed and well-equipped institutions to move into the next generation.”
