Opposition politicians are the ones inciting South Africans against Nigerians – Abike Dabiri

Abike Dabiri, the Senior Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs and the Diaspora to the Presidency in an interview has revealed that the opposition politicians are the ones inciting the people in South Africa against foreigners.

In her interview this morning on national TV, She said; “Opposition politicians are inciting the people in South Africa, telling them what they want to hear”.

She also said; “Xenophobia is not just a Nigerian thing, it’s an African thing”.

She further went on to challenge the South African Government to call the opposition to order, saying “It is important to embark on some awareness Education programmes to South Africans carrying out Xenophobic attacks”.

“This is about Africa killing Africans, Africa hating Africans, its not a Nigerian thing and the South African Government need to face the reality that opposition politicians are inciting the people. We have written to the African Union, it goes beyond just talking about it, AU must table this as a critical discussion. Africans need to be protected within Africa.”, she said.

Recall that this is not the first time Xenophobic attacks have been unleashed on foreigners especially Nigerians in South Africa.

“Not everybody that was affected the last time has been compensated. South Africa need to go down to the basics and educate the people. This administration wants to ensure that every Nigerian who calls for distress is sorted out”, Abike concluded.
