NANS Carpet South African Government Over Xenophobic Attack On Nigerians


As more condemnation continues to trail the xenophobic attack on Nigerians by South Africans the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Thursday added it’s voice to the condemnation of the killing and maiming of Nigerians with strings worded warning to President Jacob Zuma to stop playing politics with the lives of Nigerians with immediate effect.

The students body described the stands of President Jacob Zuma and the South African government as nonchalant and lackadaisical toward the whole issues at hand.

Taking a stand during a press briefing in Asaba, on the attack on Nigerians in South Africa, NANS Coordinator, Zone B, Comrade Pedro Obi condemned the continued xenophobic killings in its entirety and appealed to Nigerians, especially the students living in South Africa and other parts of the world to remain calm and law abiding and more vigilant and remember to protect themselves against the failed South
African state.

The apex body of the students disclosed that if not for the intervention of the Delta state governor, Mr. Ifeanyi Okowa, they had prepared to close down all businesses with South Africa interest in the region in response to the xenophobic attack on Nigerians.

“We allowed reasoning to prevail after the intervention of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state and security agencies, knowing well that most of the businesses have Nigerians interests and cannot put more Nigerians into untold hardship”.

The body however frowned at the snail pace the xenophobic attack was been handled by Nigerians and demanded a swift response from the government to end the killings.
