The Guardian disclosed that President Buhari said this when he received President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa at the State House, Abuja on Wednesday.
The President reiterated Nigeria’s commitment to improving a “special relationship’’ with South Africa, which would translate into gains for the continent, particularly in education, science, trade and investment, tourism and security.
At the opening of the 10th Session of Nigeria-South Africa Bi-National Commission (BNC) held in his office, President Buhari said:
“Mr President, permit me to state that some of the challenges identified during the last Bi-National Commission (BNC) have not been completely addressed.
“We need to ensure that our people-to-people relations are enhanced to a point where there would be no need for unhealthy competition.”
