Boris Johnson, UK prime minister, says his country is available to help Nigeria in fighting insecurity.

According to a statement by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesperson, Johnson gave President Muhammadu Buhari the assurance on Thursday at a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the Global Education Summit in London, UK.

Adesina said Buhari and Johnson assessed the war against different forms of terrorism in Nigeria and agreed that the judicial process must be allowed to run its course.

He said the two leaders concluded that it is important that the judicial process runs without interference, no matter who’s involved.

He also reviewed the security situation in the different regions of the country.

On his part, Johnson pledged Britain’s preparedness to lend a helping hand.

“We are available to help,” Adesina quoted him as saying.

The leaders also discussed the leadership of the Commonwealth, how to increase trade between the two countries, develop solar and wind power, and other issues.

Buhari had on Monday travelled to London to participate in the summit. 

The summit is co-hosted by Boris Johnson and President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya.

After the summit, the president is expected to spend a few days in London for an earlier scheduled medical check-up and is due back by the second week of August.
