Tinubu Seeks Beneficial Partnership with South Africa

President Bola Tinubu on Thursday held a private meeting with South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa in Johannesburg, where he solicited a closer partnership with Nigeria. 

Special Adviser on media and publicity to the President, Ajuri Ngelale in a statement said, before the closed meeting, which was held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, President Ramaphosa thanked President Tinubu for honouring the invitation to attend his inauguration for a second term in office.

“Thank you so much for coming for the inauguration. I was very happy to see my brother at the ceremony,” the South African President said. 

President Tinubu noted that President Ramaphosa’s inaugural speech captured most of the challenges faced by African countries and the need for more collaboration among leaders and citizens to provide solutions.

“I enjoyed your speech at the ceremony. I was delighted listening to you. We have lots of issues in common, and we need to work more closely together. It was a good celebration,” the President stated.

President Ramaphosa was re-elected into office for a second term on Friday, June 14, 2024, following an agreement for a Government of National Unity between the African National Congress (ANC) and the Democratic Alliance.
