UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, told African leaders Monday that Britain would be more open to migrants from Africa after Brexit.
Johnson, who made this known as he hosted the first UK – Africa Investment Summit in London, told African leaders , including presidents Abdel Fattah al -Sisi of Egypt and Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria that he wanted to make Britain their “ investment partner of choice.”
The summit holds less than two weeks before Britain leaves the European Union .
After highlighting all that Britain has to offer, he said Brexit would mean an end to preferential treatment for EU migrants.
“Our ( immigration) system is becoming fairer and more equal between all our global friends and partners, treating people the same, wherever they come from.
“By putting people before passports we will be able to attract the best talent from around the world, wherever they may be,” he said.
