Secondus in a statement by his Media Aide, Ike Abonyi, said that the party had a lot to learn from ANC, which he described as a mass movement.

The chairman, who listed insecurity as the biggest problem facing Nigeria today, urged the international community to assist the country in tackling the challenge.

“Nigeria is distressed as a result of the security challenge. We need help from anybody, who can help in ideas and other logistics to bring peace in the land,” he said.


Secondus commended the South Africa government, particularly President Cyril Ramaphosa for the uncommon interest showed in Nigeria’s Dr Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala that led to her victory at the contest for the World Trade Organization, WTO, Director-General.

Responding, the High Commissioner, Mseleku, expressed the desire of the South Africa government to continue to strengthen the relationship between the two countries.

Mseleku said that Nigeria and South Africa must come together to save the continent pointing out that “there is no hope for the continent if the two countries fail to work together.”

The high commissioner also observed the frequent movement of politicians from one party to the other.

He noted that South Africa suffered similar things in the past until it found a stabilizing way by removing carpeting crossing in its constitution.
