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.
