Archbishop Of Canterbury Visits Buhari In London Again

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, on Friday, paid a personal visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at Abuja House, London.

This was confirmed by Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina, in a statement.

Adesina said Welby and his principal are friends, who share deep respect for each other.

“The cleric pledged to continue praying for both President Buhari and Nigeria,” Adesina said.

“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.
