South Africa gives President Buhari a historic welcome.
The South African presidency, on Wednesday, gave President Muhammadu Buhari and his entourage a historic welcome as the president landed at the Pretoria Airport.
President Buhari, who arrived at the Waterloof Air Force Base, Pretoria, on Wednesday, has begun his three-day official visit to the country.
Before leaving the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for Pretoria at about 1.30 pm, the president presided over the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
The visit is coming on the heels of recent xenophobic attacks, the evacuation of hundreds of Nigerians and the exchange of visits by special envoys of Presidents Buhari and Ramaphosa.
The Nigerian leader will hold bilateral meetings with his South African counterpart, President Cyril Ramaphosa, in Pretoria, to discuss the welfare of Nigerians.
The two African leaders will also find common grounds for building harmonious relations among their respective citizens.
Buhari will hold a town hall meeting with Nigerians living in the country to share in their experiences before returning home on Friday.
