The premier, who is currently in a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja, will fly to Lagos where she will meet with business leaders and announce the formation of a U.K.-Nigeria fintech partnership.
The fintech partnership which is 2 million pounds ($2.6 million) is to support Nigerian innovators. She will also visit the securities exchange company FMDQ in Lagos.
“Already the finance and business links between Lagos and London are bringing enormous benefits to businesses and people in the U.K. and in Nigeria and today’s announcements deepen this burgeoning partnership even further,” May said.
