The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has advised South African President, Jacob Zuma, to stay away from the inauguration of the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari. The organisation also threatened to storm the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, should Zuma step into the country's airport.
According to the association, Zuma should keep off as his visit will be an insult to the sensibility of Nigerians over his alleged poor handling of the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other migrant foreigners in South Africa.
A statement by NANS President, Tijani Usman, noted that Zuma’s inability to "apologise to Nigerians like he did to Mozambique", despite the sacrifices the country made for South Africa, was unfortunate.
He said: "We wish to advise the South African President (Jacob Zuma) to rather stay at home and address burning issues, rather than embarking on a visit that is the least desirable.
"The South African President's failure to apologise to Nigeria for the losses the country and our citizens incurred during the xenophobic attacks on foreigners leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. There is therefore, no point felicitating with a people who clearly do not matter much to you. President Zuma's visit will only amount to pretence
NANS further restated its earlier position that it will henceforth not hesitate to clamp down on South African investments in the country should any incident of xenophobic attacks recur.

How can another person be the source of your problem or you are the problem itself, and he wanted to come to Nigeria, or he never wanted to come in the first place, the context here is not complete.

How can we cause problem for them when Nigerians in South Africa are helping South Africa, or they are afraid their women are marrying Nigerians, or they are lazy and they want the white man to keep fixing the economy, anyway their fears are similar with our fears in those days of Ghanians, and later we can see Ghana doing well today, now it's Nigerians turn, they are afraid of us, well, soon they will see Nigeria doing fantastically well.
