The party (APC), is calling on the South Africa’s ruling Party ANC, to look into the crisis, been that the Xenophobic attack on African migrants especially Nigerians rubbishes the ideals of the party.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said Nigeria deserved better from South Africa.
The statement reads, “As a party, we are deeply saddened by these unwarranted attacks.
“Nigeria deserves better from South Africa. It is too early for South Africans to forget their country’s history.
“Many of the key players in the struggle against apartheid are still alive and active in the country’s national affairs.
“We, therefore, cannot understand why there seems to be a conspiracy of silence on their part.
“The barbaric attack on citizens of other countries points to a failure of leadership.
“South African leaders cannot exonerate themselves from this cowardly act.
“We call on the South African ruling party, the African National Congress, to urgently step in. This is completely at variance with what ANC stands for.
“The ANC government can no longer pretend about this obvious contradiction.”
