President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday it listed some areas that Nigeria witnessed development under its administration.
He disclosed this to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson when the two leaders met on the sidelines of the Africa-UK Investment Summit 2020 in London.
The areas listed by Buhari that Nigeria has witnessed progress include agriculture, fighting the insurgency and fighting corruption.
In agriculture, he told P.M Johnson that his government's advances in agriculture have seen Nigeria become almost self-sufficient in rice and other grains.
Development, he said, was saving billions of dollars in foreign currency, which is now being distributed to other areas of development.
In the war against the insurgency, the president said that things were much better, with the discouragement of people's minds about the true philosophy of Boko Haram, and the main challenge is in the area of resettlement of displaced persons, which is being faced head on.
"We have a long history with the British military and we are collaborating," added President Buhari.
In the anti-corruption war, the president said that although slow but careful, cooperation from the UK's National Crime Agency was still needed, particularly in investigating fugitives from Nigeria finding accommodation in the UK.
Climate change, President Buhari said, has been a challenge for Nigeria and neighboring African countries, especially with Lake Chad shrinking to a minuscule original size.
The Nigerian leader also said that the country was concentrated and progressing in education, particularly in the girl.
Johnson speaking, he thanked President Buhari for being a regional leader who strongly encourages the West, congratulating him on the jobs created by agriculture and asking him to do more.
