STATE HOUSE PRESS RELEASE

PRESIDENT BUHARI VISITS SOUTH AFRICA OVER WELFARE OF NIGERIANS

President Muhammadu Buhari departs Abuja Wednesday on a three-day State Visit to the Republic of South Africa, following an invitation by President Cyril Ramaphosa, to discuss welfare of Nigerians, and find common grounds for building harmonious relations with their hosts.

The visit comes against the background of recent xenophobic attacks, the evacuation of hundreds of Nigerians and the exchange of visits by Special Envoys of Presidents Buhari and Ramaphosa.

While in South Africa, the Nigerian leader will hold a town hall meeting with Nigerians living in the country, with a view to sharing in their experiences and reassuring them of Nigerian government’s commitment to working for the protection of their lives and property and promoting peaceful co-existence.

President Buhari and his host will preside over the South Africa/Nigeria Bi-National Commission, during which a progress report will be presented. At the end of the meeting, both leaders will sign a joint communiqué.

The President and his delegation including Nigerian business representatives will also participate at a South Africa-Nigeria Business Forum with their host counterparts.

President Buhari will be accompanied by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State, Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State and Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State.

Others are: Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama; Minister of Defence, Maj. Gen. Bashir Magashi (retd); Minister of Power, Eng. Saleh Mamman; Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola; Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Arch. Olamilekan Adegbite; Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi; and Minister of State, Industry, Trade and Investment, Amb. Mariam Katagum.

Also on the trip are: National Security Adviser, Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd); Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar; and Chairman/CEO Nigeria Diaspora Commission, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa.

The President will return to Abuja on Friday.

The President should not mince words while addressing Ramaphosa.

At least, lecture them on how Nigerians fought for their liberation.

SA economy is currently in shambles and their politicians are failing them big time hence pushing the blames to foreigners.

Little wonder SA officials gave tacit and covert support to the attacks.

There is no way Nigerians can sell drugs there without the approval of highly placed SAfricans who are benefitting the crime.

Say no to Xenophobia.

Such a very wasteful and unproductive way to rule a country. All these people will sure collect estacode. They will fly in presidential Jet, and will be lodged in first-class hotels at the expense of the task payer. The government that cared so much for Nigerians in SA could not help their evacuation. Hunger is at home. No money to pay minimum wage. Haba. Buhari, na wa.

Great Man.

Let us settle this xenophobia issue once and for all.

May God continue to give BABA wisdom, knowledge and understanding as he takes our country to a New and better place from the broken foundation he met on ground.

God bless President Muhammadu Buhari.
God bless Nigeria.
