Xenophobia: NANS wants Nigeria, South Africa leaders to intervene



The National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS), has implored the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari and his South African counterpart, Cyril Ramaphosa, to  intervene toward ending xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.

Mr Adeyemi Azeez, national Public Relations Officer (PRO), of the association, made the suggestion in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Sunday.

Azeez said that for South Africa businesses to thrive in Nigeria, the problems of xenophobic attacks must first be dealt with.


According to him, NANS believes it is imperative for the two leaders to meet urgently and address the issue.

“Our resolve is that businesses of South Africans will only thrive in Nigeria if we put an end to Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.

“NANS leadership has determinedly  resolved not to relent in championing an infinite struggle against South African bussinesses in Nigeria, as long as Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians by South Africans continues.

” NANS calls on the two leaders to address the issue of Xenophobic attacks as that of an outbreak of EBOLA or any other deadly disease.”

Azeez described the proposed meeting of the two president in October as a welcome development, but added that the time frame for the meeting was too long owing to the urgency of the matter.

He said that the association would therefore want the two presidents to, as a matter of urgency, reschedule the meeting to a closer date, preferably in the next seven days.
