Find Out What Happened When Buhari Met “His Defenders” Archbishop Of Canterbury Justin Welby


Yesterday, President Muhammadu Buhari met with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at Lambeth Palace, London. The Archbishop had defended Buhari after David Cameron’s now
notorious off-hand comment that Nigeria is
“fantastically corrupt”.

At the meeting, Buhari met Archbishop Justin, the
secretary general of the Anglican Communion, Dr Josiah Idowu-Fearon and the Bishop of Guildford, Andrew Watson.

In a statement released following the meeting, the
Archbishop said;

“It was a great honour to welcome the
President of Nigeria, Muhammadu
Buhari, to Lambeth Palace in London
this morning.
It’s a rare day at Lambeth Palace when
we do not pray for Nigeria, the largest country in Africa, which has a very
large Anglican Church. We pray for
President Buhari and for all those
both in government and in
We pray for the poor in Nigeria and for those who have suffered over the
last number of years from the violence
that has plagued the country, which
President Buhari has been tackling so
determinedly since he first took office.

Nigeria is a country which has more
promise, more opportunity, more
potential than anywhere else that I
know in many continents, not just in
Africa. Its people are so intelligent, so
full of energy, so full of commitment, that when Nigerians work together,
the world – not just Africa – is affected
by that beneficially.

So we continue to pray for the
potential and future of this land to be
a place that has a profound effect for
good on our world, and
demonstrates what is possible to be
