Nigeria and South Africa could work together – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently on a visit to South Africa stated:
As the two largest economies in Africa, there are many areas in which Nigeria and South Africa can share experiences, invest and cooperate. Ours is a relationship full of potential and promise and this can only be a win-win for our peoples and for Africa at large.
I would like to again thank President Cyril Ramaphosa for inviting me and my delegation. The last two days have demonstrated strongly the importance of keeping on the same page as we march forward, hand in hand, as one people with a shared vision and one destiny.
Let me highlight that the South Africa-Nigeria Bi-National Commission is the only BNC that Nigeria has with any country that is co-chaired at Heads of State level, reflecting the strategic and special nature of the relationship between our two countries.
Both countries firmly believe that a strong strategic relationship between Nigeria and South Africa can become the engine for the rapid economic, political, social, and cultural development of Africa, thereby delivering the Africa we want.
To this end, and to consolidate on our joint quest to deepen this strategic relationship, I have taken the opportunity to formally invite President Ramaphosa to pay a State Visit to Nigeria.
Federal Republic of Nigeria.
