NANS to shun proposed cultural exchange programme between Nigeria, South Africa

Amidst the alleged xenophobic attacks on Nigerians citizens by South African, the National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS), has opposed the proposed cultural exchange programme between Nigerian and South African youths.

The President of NANS, Danielson Akpan who spoke to newsmen after a meeting with Mr Bobby Moroe, Acting High Commissioner of South Africa to Nigeria, made NANS position known on the cultural exchange programme between Nigeria and South Africa aimed at fostering unity between the two countries.

Akpan said that the proposed exchange programme by the South African High Commission and the Federal Government for youths and students’ body would not work in view of the prevailing situation in South Africa.

”We do not need the proposed exchange programme; how do you carry out exchange programme in a place where you are not safe?
“Our members, who are schooling in South Africa, have been calling us that they want to come back home.

The meeting was organised by the high commission in collaboration with the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Global Peace Initiative (GPI) and Committee of Youth on Mobilisation and Sensitisation (CYMS) and National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS).
