Veteran actor and comedian, Alibaba, called Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday for the xenophobic attacks against foreigners, particularly Nigerians in South Africa.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that Alibaba, on his Instagram page, wondered what Buhari can do in such a situation when the problem of murders in Nigeria had not yet been resolved. He cited a past event in which Nigeria sanctioned MTN and resulted in a presidential visit by the president.
Ali Baba wrote: “Most of the time, some people only read the news, hear the story and do not know the underlying currents of the report. Many do not know the interconnections of the link of any news they hear.
“She says that I am a comedian … Ok. Let our president handle some threads, that South African president, who has not been able to stop the xenophobic madness, will be created by the owners of the big South African companies in Nigeria, so that fall, in less than two weeks.
“But when we have a president who can’t take decisive action when people are being killed like flies in his country, what will he say when it happens outside of Nigeria?
“If we have the right country, what would we be doing in another man’s land to guarantee xenophobic attacks? Fix Nigeria. ” Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his “deep concern” over attacks on Nigerian citizens and property in South Africa.
In a statement by Buhari’s exclusive advisor on media and advertising, Femi Adesina said that Buhari had sent a special envoy to his South African counterpart, President Cyril Ramaphosa. The Special Envoy is expected to arrive in Pretoria on the last Thursday, September 5, 2019.”
