June 16, 2015 – Buhari To Nigerians Living In South Africa: Respect Yourself & Exercise Self Control
President Muhammadu Buhari met with some Nigerians living in South Africa yesterday Monday June 15, 2015 after the African Union Summit that held in Johannesburg.
In the wake of the xenophobic attacks that killed several foreigners in the country, Buhari promises to strengthen diplomatic relationship between Nigeria and South Africa. He also told Nigerian citizens living in SA to conduct themselves in honourable manner.
In his words;
“Those of you who have the opportunity to come here and represent us, make sure that you are representing Nigeria, you are all ambassadors of Nigeria. This means a lot of patience, restraint and self-respect and pride. You must have all these.”
Buhari promises to kill corruption in Nigeria:
“Government is determined to secure the country, manage the economy, create employment and fight corruption. Some articulate writers have said if we do not kill corruption in Nigeria, corruption will kill Nigeria. This APC administration intends to kill corruption in Nigeria. We will do our best, I assure you.”
