She next heads to Kenya on Wednesday, before visiting Nigeria 24 hours lates.

May was also challenged on whether she would order her MPs to vote for no deal if her preferred approach - agreed following talks at Chequers - was not secured with the EU.

But May said Britain was well-placed and had many companies ready to invest in Africa.

Mrs May will discuss security, trade and people trafficking with President Muhammadu Buhari before meeting victims of modern slavery in Lagos.

Her boogie came as she announced a scholarship programme for 100 African youngsters to study in Britain at the start of three-day trip across the continent.

At a packed school assembly, she told the pupils: "Can I thank all those young people who were involved in the performances outside who welcomed me".

The disgraced former defence secretary had previously said that a post-Brexit deal with the European Union would be "the easiest in human history".

Theresa May has tried to reassure Brits a no-deal Brexit would not be the "end of the world".

She played down warnings from Chancellor Philip Hammond - who said last week that a no-deal Brexit could damage the economy.

However, the Prime Minister hit back saying she believed Mr Hammond was talking about old figures from January, adding: "They were a work in progress at that particular time".

"We must make sure that everything which is in our country we share".

May was asked about whether she would instruct her Conservative lawmakers to support a no-deal Brexit if her blueprint falls through.

Nigeria is Britain's second largest trading partner in Africa, but should the country be so focused on the UK?

Mrs May announced from a four-day tour in Africa that "unless we receive assurance that we can collaborate on a close basis in the future - like the close security partners we aspire to be - we are clear that we will withdraw United Kingdom support for Galileo and pursue our own sovereign satellite system".

"True partnerships are not about one party doing unto another, but states, governments, businesses and individuals working together in a responsible way to achieve common goals", May said.
