The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has, on Thursday, 8th of August 2019, issued an ultimatum for all South-African companies in Nigeria consisting of MTN, DSTV, STANBIC IBTC, SHOPRITE and the likes to leave Nigeria in seven days’ time due to the continuous xenophobic attack on Nigerians in South Africa.
It should be recalled that according to Premium times, on the 15th of August 2019, one hundred and eighteen (118) Nigerians have lost their lives so far with thirteen (13) killed by South African police themselves who are supposed to be ensuring peace and safety.
Following these series of actions, the student organisation, NANS, staged a protest on the 8th of August to make their grievances known. During the march, one of the leaders, Mr. Danladi Jonah, said,
“We are here to shut down the businesses of MTN, DSTV, Stanbic IBTC Bank and Shoprite, which are South African interests. This is in line with the seven-day ultimatum by the President of NANS, who demanded an end to the killing of Nigerians in South Africa. We have the capacity to run our economy, we don’t need any foreign company for Nigeria to thrive. We, the students of Nigeria, would not sit back to watch the killings continue, because our parents contributed their resources to fight apartheid in South Africa too.”
Following this new development, Nigerians have taken to social media to air their views concerning this issue.
“South Africans are ungrateful. We helped them get independence. We provided money to sponsor their people. They should be slave forever to white people there. There is nothing in South Africa for me. Our people should refrain from going there. We need to close their embassy in Nigeria and recall our ambassador. Good riddance to them,” they said.
