Muhammadu Buhari-Jacob ZumaThe federal government says South African President Jacob Zuma’s visit to Nigeria at the behest of President Muhammadu Buhari is aimed at deepening trade relations between both nations.
The South African leader is expected to begin a two-day visit to Nigeria on Tuesday.
Speaking with State House correspondents on Monday, Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyema, said President Zuma was coming with a large entourage of investors.
The minister further hinted that the meeting would also discuss the numerous challenges confronting Nigerians living in South Africa.
The meeting is also expected to calm the tension that may exist “at another level” among the citizens of both countries.
“The meeting between both presidents is very timely. Nigeria and South Africa are the pillars of this continent. And moving forward, both countries have to work together, both presidents have to be close. So, this meeting is going to help to increase the trade between both countries, and they’re both facing inimical challenges. So, it’s absolutely important that President Zuma is coming with a large entourage of business people. So, we’re going to be looking at areas of cooperation in the trade sector”, he said.
“If there have been a number of things that have been in the news recently about Nigerians in South Africa, some of the challenges that they face there, and we’re determined that this should not foul the relationship between the two countries. I believe that the visit is important because it’s going to give us an opportunity to really look at what is causing this problem and what the two governments can do about it. It’s also very important symbolically and emphatically that Nigerians and South Africans can see from this visit how close the two countries are and how close the two leaders are”, Onyema added.
