President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that His Royal Majesty King Charles III asked him if he had a house in the United Kingdom.
Buhari met the king on Wednesday at Buckingham Palace.
In an interview after meeting the 73-year-old monarch, Buhari revealed how his meeting with the king went.
“He (King Charles III) asked me whether I have a house here (in the UK), I said no. I live in Nigeria alone, the only house I have are those I have before I got into government and I am not very much interested in having houses all over the place. I feel much freer when I have nothing,” Buhari said.
On the purpose of his visit to King Charles, Buhari said Nigeria is a large market and it is only wise for the business relationship between the two countries to be nurtured.
“Firstly, we are to meet with the king in Kigali but unfortunately, the meeting was postponed. He is interested very much in Nigeria, maybe because of Nigeria’s relationship with Britain for long, our economic strength, I think we are still of great attachment to them,” he said.
Buhari travelled to the UK on October 31 for “routine medical check-up”.
