In the wake of alleged xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has asked the Federal Government to nationalise South African businesses in Nigeria.
He made the call at the end of an emergency National Working Committee (NWC) meeting of the ruling party in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
“In order to send a very strong message to South African authorities and the South African people, it is worth it for the Nigerian government to take steps to take over the remaining shares of MTN that are owned by South Africans so that MTN becomes fully Nigeria-owned.
“While South African government is envious of the small businesses which Nigerians are involved in South Africa, South African companies are making billions of dollars from the Nigerian economy year in year out and repatriating same out of Nigeria,” Oshiomhole added.
He stated that NigeriNews a cannot afford to keep playing the role you of a big brother at the expense of its national interest.
