Xenophobia: Nigeria recalls envoy to South African, Kabiru Bala

Reverse education budget cuts now, Malala Fund, CSOs tell Buhari

Nigeria has recalled its High commissioner to South Africa, Ambassador Kabiru Bala over the recent xenophobic killings of Nigerians.

By this action the country has sent a strong message to the South African government that it will no longer accept the wanton killings of its citizens in a wave of xenophobic attacks.

The nation also announced that it has pulled out of the World Economic Summit taking place in South Africa.

Not done with registering its disgust over the unwarranted killings of Nigerians and other migrants of African descent, Nigeria also demanded full compensation for the destruction of the properties of its citizens.

The decision was reportedly reached at a morning meeting which had President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja.

Sources close to the presidency disclosed that Nigeria would pull out of the World Economic Forum on Africa, scheduled to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from September 4 to 6.

By this action, Nigeria will follow the examples of Congo, Rwanda and Malawi, who have since pulled out of the Summit.
