The president noted that 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.

"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," he said

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

Meanwhile, some Nigerians in the Uk have described the outcome of the referendum as a catastrophe for ethnic minorities in Europe.
