President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday called for a strong brotherhood bond between Nigeria and South Africa, stating that it will serve as a catalyst for economic, technological, social and cultural development and as a force for peace and security on the continent.
Buhari made the call in Abuja at the opening of the 10th session of the Nigeria-South Africa Bi-National Commission (BNC).
“In this regard, we need improvement in educational and scientific cooperation, mines and energy resources, transport and aviation, tourism, youth exchange programmes, trade and investment, and military cooperation, to mention but a few.”
“Let me at this point reiterate my commitment to ensure that the special relationship between our two countries is continually strengthened,” he added.
“It is also gratifying to observe that this has been brought about by the dogged commitment of senior officials from our countries.
“More importantly, it is gratifying to note that despite the pandemic, our timelines for implementing some decisions of the 9th BNC have been met. Similarly, discussions are on-going on new and important areas of cooperation between our two countries.”
