ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Catriona Wendy Laing, the outgoing British High Commissioner to Nigeria, has bid farewell to Nigeria, saying she was sad as she is set to leave the country.
She spoke yesterday, during a farewell visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja, after a four-and-a half years tour of duty.
Her words: “I’m sad to be leaving. Nigeria is so much fun, I had a fabulous time here, and I will be back. I love the dance, music and culture.
“It has been good to experience Nigeria. I have been to over 20 States, and I have told my successor to also do the same. I will be back and still travel wider.”
Also, she congratulated President Buhari for a very successful eight years in office, adding that he had done very well to hold the country together.
On his part, the President said the United Kingdom was a second home for many Nigerians, and relations between both nations will continue to wax strong.
“In fact, some wealthy Nigerians don’t feel complete till they have had a home in the UK,” Buhari said.
