Federal government reiterates commitment to implement warning mechanisms with South Africa

Following the renewed xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa, the federal government has restated its commitment to ensure the implementation of the Early Warning Signal mechanisms recently signed between both countries in South Africa, as part of the efforts to curb xenophobic attacks.

The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who disclosed this in a statement issued today by the commission’s Head of Media Unit, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, insisted that the Consul General in South Africa, Godwin Adama, was on top of the situation.

This comes on heels of a report yesterday that South African citizens resumed xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in Mpumalamga area of the country.

Dabiri-Erewa noted that developments at this stage would be taken up at the ministerial level, between the two ministers of Foreign Affairs of both countries.
