Tinubu to visit South Africa on Tuesday

President Bola Tinubu will depart Lagos for Pretoria, South Africa, to attend the inauguration of President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday, June 18.

Special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, in a statement on Monday said Tinubu will return to Nigeria after the ceremony.

Ngelale said the inauguration of President Ramaphosa follows his re-election as President for a second term.

South Africa’s parliament re-elected Ramaphosa following a coalition deal between the governing African National Congress (ANC) and opposition parties.

The new administration comprises Ramaphosa’s ANC, the Democratic Alliance (DA), the main opposition, and other political parties.

After ruling for 30 years since the end of apartheid in South Africa, the ANC had lost its firm grip in the last election which brought about a coalition.

President Tinubu had earlier congratulated the South African president over his re-election.
