Tinubu And Ramaphosa Meet For Bilateral Talks

Tinubu And Ramaphosa Meet For Bilateral Talks
President Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, engaged in diplomatic and economic discussions with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Gatekeepers News reports that the meeting was disclosed by Olusegun Dada, a presidential aide, on Thursday in a post on X.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu receives South Africa President @CyrilRamaphosa for Diplomatic, Economic and Bilateral talks after a successful Presidential Inauguration Ceremony,” Dada said in the post.

Tinubu’s visit to South Africa coincided with Ramaphosa’s inauguration following a historic coalition deal between the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and opposition parties.

The new Government includes Ramaphosa’s ANC, the main opposition Democratic Alliance (DA), and other smaller parties.

The ANC lost its majority in last month’s election after three decades of rule since the end of apartheid.

A recent viral video purportedly showed Ramaphosa ignoring Tinubu, but the presidency clarified that the video was taken out of context.

Tinubu and Ramaphosa previously met at the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in September 2023, where the Nigerian leader sought to strengthen economic ties between both countries.
