The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, made this known in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja on Friday.

According to Adesina, the Archbishop and President Buhari are friends, who share deep respect for each other.

The presidential spokesman further quoted Welby as saying that he was delighted to see the rapid recovery the president has made from his health challenges, adding that it was a testimony to the healing powers of God, and answer to prayers of millions of people round the world.

“The cleric pledged to continue praying for both President Buhari and Nigeria,” Adesina said.

“In his response, the Nigerian president thanked Archbishop Welby, whom he noted had always stood by him at critical times, and wished him God’s continued grace in his spiritual duty of leading the Anglican Communion worldwide.

“It will be recalled that when former British prime minister, David Cameron described Nigeria as a ‘fantastically corrupt’ country ahead of an anti-corruption summit in London in 2016, Archbishop Welby had retorted: ‘But this particular President (Buhari) is actually not corrupt’.”

The Archbishop later personally received the Nigerian President at Lambert Palace, London, and had also paid a goodwill visit to Buhari in March, during his medical vacation.
