“Although we did not celebrate officially, we sensitised compatriots in South Africa to the need to be law abiding and to always portray the image of our fatherland in good light.

“We also met with the Nigeria Consul-General in Johannesburg, Mr Abdukmalik Ahmed, and talked about our welfare and the need for protection of Nigerians living in South Africa.

“The meeting was attended by all Nigerian communities in South Africa and we pledged to work closely together to continue to foster unity among fellow compatriots abroad,” Okoli said.
