The meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa and

National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has ended with a resolution that MTN Nigeria, MultiChoice , Shoprite and other South African companies in Nigeria should stop operation and quit the business environment within seven days.

These companies were given seven days ultimatum to shut down their businesses and leave Nigeria pending the time the South African government end the killing of Nigerians in South Africa. The continuous crackdown on Nigerians and other African nationals by South Africans has given rise to intense tension between both countries since the targeted Xenophobic attack began some years back. Speaking on behalf of NANS, the President, Comrade Danielson Akpan, urged Nigerians living in South Africa to cancel their stay, while advising South Africans in Nigeria to leave Nigeria as well, as the group plans to start treating South Africans in the country the same way Nigerians are being assaulted, killed, leaving their properties destroyed or stolen.
