President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday described the resignation of British Prime Minister David Cameron, which will come into effect in October as a demonstration of courage.

According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President said Nigeria has enjoyed remarkable goodwill, support and understanding under the leadership of the outgoing Prime Minister over the years.

He said Cameron’s resignation in response to the outcome of a referendum that supported Britain to leave the European Union “was a demonstration of courage by a democratic leader who respects the will of the people, even if he didn’t agree with their decision.”

Buhari noted that by “putting the will of the people before his political future, the Prime Minister proved himself to be a selfless leader with respect for democracy and voters’ sovereignty.’’


The President expressed hope that Nigeria looks forward to greater cooperation and consolidation of shared interests with Britain, despite the outcome of the referendum.
