President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on the sidelines of the UK-Africa Investment Summit 2020.
During the meeting which held in London, the President brought the British PM up to speed with developments in Nigeria, reeling out gains in different areas of national endeavour.
The Nigerian leader told Mr Johnson about the efforts of his administration in the agricultural sector, saying it has led almost to self-sufficiency in rice and other grains production.
According to him, Nigeria has saved billions of naira in foreign exchange and the efforts are now deployed in other areas of development.
On the war against insurgency, President Buhari said things were a lot better, stressing that the Nigerian government was making efforts to disabuse the minds of the people on the true philosophy of Boko Haram.
He admitted that the main challenge has been in the area of resettling displaced people in the North East, noting that the situation was being tackled frontally.
“We have a long history with the British military, and we are collaborating,” the President was quoted as saying in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
He further highlighted the feats recorded in the anti-corruption war, saying the fight was slow but painstaking.
