The Presidency has maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari‘s visit to South Africa to meet with Cyril Ramaphosa over the latest Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians remains on course.
Naija News reports that the Presidency made this known in a statement on Saturday.
The presidency noted that the visit was to reinforce “the strong bonds between the two countries” and jointly develop responses to problems affecting people and businesses in South Africa and Nigeria.
Recall that President Ramaphosa held discussions on Friday with Buhari’s special envoy, NIA DG Amb. Ahmed Abubakar, in the wake of public violence in South Africa and developments in Nigeria around South African businesses based in the West African country.
The visit to Pretoria by Abubakar followed a recent meeting between Ramaphosa and Buhari in Yokohama, Japan, on the sidelines of the summit of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development.
Buhari conveyed his commitment to the values of prosperity and the advancement of Africa that were shared by South Africa and Nigeria.
