#Brexit: President Buhari Praises Cameron as Courageous Statesman

President Buhari this afternoon held a Bilateral Meeting with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, in London

President Buhari at a Bilateral Meeting with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, in London during the Anti Corruption Summit.

President Muhammadu Buhari has empathised with British Prime Minister David Cameron’s decision to resign in October.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

President Buhari said Nigeria had enjoyed remarkable goodwill, support and understanding under the capable leadership of the outgoing Prime Minister over the years.

Cameron announced his decision to resign in response to the outcome of a referendum that supported Britain to leave the European Union.

“This is a demonstration of courage by a democratic leader who respects the will of the people, even if he didn’t agree with their decision,” Buhari said.

Buhari noted that by “putting the will of the people before his political future, the Prime Minister proved himself to be a selfless leader with respect for democracy and voters’ sovereignty”.

The President said “Nigeria looks forward to greater cooperation and consolidation of shared interests with Britain, despite the outcome of the referendum”.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    “This is a demonstration of courage by a democratic leader who respects the will of the people, even if he didn’t agree with their decision,”

    Bigoted hypocrite.
    You know what it means to respect the will of unpopular decisions, yet you sent soldiers to kill and maim peaceful protesters who were discussing Biafrexit in Onitsha.
    Alex Salmond preached for a dissolution of the Union, yet he is still walking free. If you were the PM, MI6 would have banged him up in handcuffs.

      He should not sympathise too much with Cameron. Nigerians are about now fed up with his nonsense. Kwuoruption is all we hear. Nothing on how to bail out the economy. We will soon have a referendum on his right to remain or exit that post.

    Who asked him? Must Buhari ALWAYS comment / issue statement?! Particularly on things which do not concern him directly.

      But when it concerns Herdsmen or Southerner related killings he’s mute or he sends Femi Adesina or Lai Mohammed to issue a vague statement cause it’s not nearly important enough for him to address us directly.

    My hope is that Buhari has learned at least one thing from Cameron’s exit.

      So cattle rearers are not human beings and cannot make comments? Face buhari rather than abusing all cattle rearers.

    Hehehehehe Buhari’s second or first home? The British freak must be obsessed with SKY/ CNN news against local news.
    But Mr president you are a direct opposite of democratic David Cameron. You said you would rather put a certain document in the archives You should be lumped with Equatorial Guinea et all.

      But he lives to serve Britain which gave the north all the power. He worships them. He has to bow before them each time
