APC says South Africa is suffering from failure of leadership

In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu in Abuja on Tuesday, the party said: “Our Ministry of Foreign Affairs has summoned the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria over the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians.


“This is one of the first steps in this government’s proactive response to this unfortunate incident.

“We assure Nigerians that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration will continue to take decisive measures.

“The safety of Nigerians –home and abroad — is non-negotiable to the APC administration.’

“As a party, we are deeply saddened by these unwarranted attacks. Nigeria deserves better from South Africa. It is too early for South Africans to forget their country’s history.

“Many of the key players in the struggle against apartheid are still alive and active in the country’s national affairs. We therefore cannot understand why there seems to be a conspiracy of silence on their part.

“The barbaric attack on citizens of other countries points to a failure of leadership. South African leaders cannot exonerate themselves from this cowardly act,’’ Issa-Onilu said.

The party’s spokesman called on the South African ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC) to urgently step in.
