Dear President Ramaphosa,
SUBJECT: Barbaric Killings and Destruction of Nigerian Businesses in South Africa.
I have tried to utilize diplomatic channels to deescalate the tension between Nigeria and South Africa, over the barbaric killings and destruction of Nigerian-owned businesses in South Africa without success. The images coming out of South Africa are gory and horrific.
The efforts of my High Commissioner, Kabiru Bala, and my special envoy to mediate, have so far been unsuccessful.
Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa, as one-time Secretary General of the ANC (African National Congress), you are fully aware that Nigeria spent over $60 billion to liberate South Africa from the clutches of white apartheid. This act of generosity has been replaced with black apartheid, targeting foreign Blacks in South Africa. Same foreign Blacks that liberated you. No greater act of ingratitude has been recorded in human history. Economists estimate this colossal expenditure to be worth over $100 billion today.
There is a video on the internet where your Deputy Police Minister, Mr. Cassel Charlie Mathale, unequivocally assured marauding South African mobs, that the South African Government has their backs covered. South African Police has been recorded leading the attacks on “foreign” Blacks.
When will South Africans start killing non-Black foreigners?
I am hereby immediately recalling my High Commissioner to South Africa, Kabiru Bala and cancelling landing rights for South African Airways in Nigeria. Flights are being arranged to evacuate Nigerians from South Africa.
I am also expelling the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Bobby Monroe. He has 48 hours to close his High Commission and Consular Services and depart Nigeria.
I have directed my Vice President, Professor Pastor Yemi Osibanjo to commence the seizure and nationalization of South African-owned businesses in Nigeria. Their assets will be sold to the Nigerian public through a public stock offering on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.
Any proceeds in excess of $100 billion will be remitted to South Africa.
Finally, we will resume diplomatic relations once South Africans eschew barbarism and savagery and return to the comity of civilized nations.
Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari
President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces,
Federal Republic of Nigeria.
