President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met behind closed doors with the special envoy from President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa.
The three envoys arrived the forecourt of the Presidential Villa, Abuja around 2.13pm in company with Acting South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Bobby Monroe.
The envoys are in Abuja over the increasing xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other Africans living in South Africa.
Apart from many Nigerians losing their lives in the country due the attacks, the first batch of 189 Nigerians returned to Nigeria from South Africa last week Wednesday.
Many more Nigerians are being expected back to the country on Tuesday.
Due to the continued attacks, many Nigerians have been expecting the Nigerian government to take far reaching decisions over the matter.
But to ward off diplomatic row over the matter, Ramaphosa had dispatched three special envoys to Nigeria, Niger, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia, to deliver messages of pan-African unity and solidarity.
The envoys are expected to deliver messages on the violence that erupted in some parts of South Africa resulting in attacks on foreign nationals and destruction of properties.
They are in Abuja to reassure President Buhari and Nigerians that South Africa is committed to the ideals of pan-African unity and solidarity.
At the meeting, they are also expected to reaffirm South Africa’s commitment to the rule of law.
They will also brief Buhari on the steps that the South African government is taking to bring a stop to the attacks as well as to hold the perpetrators to account.
Xenophobia attacks in South Africa have been on the rise as foreigners were accused of taking up employment that should have been for locals.
As a result of the attacks on Nigerians, President Buhari had a fortnight ago also sent a special envoy led by the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Abubakar Rufai, to Ramaphosa.
