New British high commissioner Catriona Laing in Nigeria to present credentials to Buhari

Riding a proverbial horse in the belly of British Catriona Laing will not be obstructed as she currently basks in the euphoria of serving her fatherland in the capacity of high commissioner to Africa's most populated country, Nigeria.

The new commissioner took to her Twitter page on Monday, January 14, to announce that she was going to State House in Abuja to meet President Muhammadu Buhari and present her credentials to him.

In the pictures posted on her verified Twitter handle, @CatrionaLaing1, the overtly euphoric British commissioner, who donned a sky-blue long sleeve jacket and black skirt, was seen in company of a police officer at the State House.
