Following the recent Xenophobic attacks in South Africa, President Buhari has charged Nigerians in other countries to ensure they respect the laws of the land in their host countries.
President Buhari gave the charge when he spoke at a joint press conference with the South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, yesterday September 3rd.
President Buhari is currently in South Africa to express his displeasure of the Xenophobic attacks that led to the destruction of properties owned by Nigerians and other African nationals residing in the country.
Speaking at the press conference, the President said
‘‘I think Nigerians know the stand of the leadership that when you are in Rome, you do waht the Romans do. When you are in a country, you study the people and the laws and you get yourself in line with what the authorities and the people accept there” he said
