THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the visiting British Prime Minister, Theresa May, to use her visit to Nigeria to uncover the “dismal state” of the Nigerian nation by resisting a “choreographed” plan by the Buhari presidency to hoodwink her for an endorsement stunt.
Britain will use its global aid budget to boost its national interest and deepen trade ties with Africa, Prime Minister Theresa May will tell an audience in South Africa on Tuesday.
The prime minister will also pledge to support victims of modern slavery who have suffered “enormous trauma”.
May arrived in Cape Town on Tuesday morning for her one-day working visit to the country. The PM visited Cape Town in South Africa on Monday and it was not her diplomatic speech that got everyone talking online.
The Prime Minister was filmed dancing with school children as she began her trade tour in Africa.
The disgraced former defence secretary had previously said that a post-Brexit deal with the European Union would be “the easiest in human history”.
“We are working for a good deal, we have put forward our proposal for a good deal”, she said.
She said Philip Hammond was highlighting “work in progress” figures released in January when he made the comment and the country could still succeed without a deal.
Theresa May has announced a multi-million pound satellite project to develop a United Kingdom rival to the EU’s Galileo.
Warnings that the decline in membership of the Conservative Party is being reversed by Ukip supporters joining to try to unseat candidates – including May – perceived as soft on Brexit is also making Theresa May shift about as uncomfortably as her position on Brexit. “We are investing in an alternative option to Galileo to ensure our future security needs are met using the UK’s world-leading space sector”.
“Between now and 2035, African nations will have to create 18 million new jobs every year just to keep pace with the rapidly growing population”.
However, Twitter had a field day after the video surfaced – posted by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation in South Africa – and comments ranged from light humour to some eyebrow-raising jokes.
