Summit to review 28 years of post apartheid relations between both nations
A summit to review 28 years of post-Apartheid relations between Nigeria and South Africa is billed to take place in Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday, April 27, 2019.
The event which is organised by The Difference Newspaper, has as co-hosts the Centre for Research in Media Development, CRIMMD and will hold at the CRIMMD Free Public Library which is located at 138 Idimu-Ejigbo Road, Idimu-Lagos.
Commencing at 4pm, the event doubles as the April edition of the monthly #FocusNationAfrica summit series put together by the pan-African newspaper to draw attention to the prospects and challenges on the path of the integration of the continent.
It is also the 25th anniversary of the beginning of majority rule in South Africa which saw the respected patriarch, Nelson Mandela taking up office as the first post-apartheid President of a ‘rainbow’ South Africa.
The event is also coming exactly two weeks before South Africa’s General Elections which the ruling African National Congress is expected to win, albeit with a much slimmer majority than it had achieved in previous polls.
