No regrets fighting apartheid in South Africa – Buhari

Juliana Taiwo-Obalonye, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday in Abuja said Nigeria had no regret fighting the apartheid scourge in South Africa until a full democratic system was established in the country.

 The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement said, Buhari stated this when he received the outgoing South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Lulu Louis Mnguni, at the State House.

President Buhari said Nigeria made lots of sacrifices during the years of apartheid to ensure that full rights were restored to all citizens, irrespective of the colour of their skin.

He said Nigeria would continue to strengthen its historic and fraternal relationship with South Africa.

The president, who congratulated Mnguni on the successful completion of his duty tour, said bilateral relations between Nigeria and South Africa will be improved, especially in trade where both countries have areas of competitive advantage.

In his remarks, the outgoing envoy expressed gratitude to the Federal Government for all the support he received.

He said the relationship between both countries had a long history of brotherliness and partnership in promoting the African cause, adding that he would return to South Africa with fond memories of Nigeria.
