The Prime Minister has acknowledged the talented designer using her social media, twitter page. In her tweet she wrote, “I was delighted to meet @emmykasbit who designed the jacket i wore in Nigeria. #UKNigeria #MadeinNigeria.
The Prime Minister has also met with both President Buhari and Lagos state Governor Ambode and is now on her way visiting Kenya and South Africa as she’s set to visit the Rhode Island where Nelson Mandela was once imprisoned. The Africa tour visit has been said to be a necessity for the Prime Minister as her Brexit deal is set to be a disastrous no deal one.
