President Buhari Orders Immediate Voluntary Evacuation Of All Nigerians Willing To Return Home From South Africa......

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday received the report of the special envoy sent to South Africa on the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians.

The President has consequently directed the next steps to take to stop the menace, according to a statement to DAILY POST by Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser.

The statement added, “In the wake of the xenophobic attacks by South Africans against other Africans including Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari sent Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, Director-General, National Intelligence Agency (DGNIA) as his Special Envoy to South Africa, to convey a Special Message to his counterpart, President Cyril Ramaphosa. The Special Envoy, who was in Pretoria from Thursday, 5th to Saturday, 7th September 2019 conveyed:

“The deep concern of President Buhari and Nigerians about intermittent violence against Nigerians and their property/business interests in South Africa.

“President Buhari stressed the need for the South African Government to take visible measures to stop violence against citizens of brotherly African nations.

“President Buhari is worried that the recurring issue of xenophobia could negatively affect the image and standing of South Africa as one of the leading countries on the continent if nothing is done to stop it.

“The Special Envoy conveyed the assurance of President Buhari that the Nigerian Government is ready and willing to collaborate with the South African Government to find a lasting solution to the involvement of few Nigerians in criminal activities, and to protect the lives and property of the larger groups of other law-abiding Nigerians and indeed Africans in general, against all forms of attacks including xenophobia.

“President Buhari further assured that the Nigerian Government will guarantee the safety of lives, property and business interests of South Africans in Nigeria.

“On his part, President Ramaphosa agreed that the violence was most disconcerting and embarrassing, adding that his government completely rejects such acts, which undermine not only the country’s image but also its relations with brotherly African countries.

“President Ramaphosa reaffirmed his stand against criminality and committed to doing everything possible to protect the rights of every Nigerian and other foreign nationals in the country.

“The Special Envoy also interfaced with his South African counterpart, where they reviewed the situation of foreign emigrants in general and Nigerians in particular. They agreed to work together to find a permanent solution to the root causes of the recurring attacks on Nigerians and their property.

“President Buhari has taken note of the report and instructed the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs to continue to engage with appropriate Authorities on the concrete measure the South African Government is expected to take.

“President Buhari has also given instruction for the immediate voluntary evacuation of all Nigerians who are willing to return home.”


  1. Return to which home? Nigeria government need to be serious for once. We should make south Africa pay compensation over this madness called xenophobia.

    1. First step is to return home, at least they will be alive.
      How do you make those unreasonable riff raffs pay? Even their so called leaders think their actions are justified.

  2. Story Tory, I miss Abacha Now

  3. Please they should act immediately.

  4. 12 "foreigners" are dead in south Africa.The country needs to bring back those that are willing asap. My hearts hurts for those that has lost their loved ones

    1. Get your facts right. 12 are dead but not all of them are foreigners. At least 4 of the dead 12 are South African citizens, and just so you know, none of the 12 is a Nigerian. So next time before you start spreading news, verify your facts.

    2. I never said they were Nigerians, I said foreigners. In your rush to attack me, give me credit for at least getting the numbers right. Foreigners or locals, does not change the fact that people died. So carry your over Sabi and go sit your dry ass somewhere.

    3. Blaze, you stated 12 foreigners categorically. That's how you people will be spreading false rumors. Do not be in a hurry to type 'shit" and then refuse to take correction. I should give you credit for getting the numbers right, seriously? If you want to spread info, verify your facts otherwise, keep your dumb opinions and fake news to yourself, no one needs misleading info in these tense circumstances.
      The attack on Nigerians escalated because of false and misleading info and videos that went viral and circulated by dumb idiots like you.

  5. Nigerians spew nonsense on the Internet and have no back bone.At least one thing I have learnt is that South Africans make threats and follow through.

  6. they should return first in peace before government should ask south african to pay for the demand they made to our people.

  7. All this President does is to give orders and directives upandan. He never follows up to see if his orders are executed, never sanctions anyone if they are not, never demands accountability. In his mind releasing press statement with order is the beginning and end of being president.
