Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffery Onyeama has directed his South African counterpart, to desist from making inflammatory comments in the heat of the recent Xenophobic attacks.
Naledi Pandor, the South African minister of Foreign Affairs had described Nigerians as traffickers during a press conference yesterday, as she called on the Nigerian government to keep Nigerians who are into drug peddling, human trafficking and other vices, from coming into her country.
According to Pandor, Nigerians in South Africa were into drug peddling, human trafficking and other vices that hurt their nation.
Like many other Nigerians, Onyeama was displeased with Pandor’s comment and has asked her to desist from making such ”outrageous” statements.
