The Nigerian Citizens Association in South Africa (NICASA) has pledged to continue to work closely with compatriots to promote unity and uplift the image of Nigeria abroad.

President-General of NICASA, Mr. Ben Okoli, made this known in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Monday.

Okoli spoke on the backdrop of how Nigerians in South Africa marked June 12, Democracy Day.

“We are happy to celebrate 22 years of democracy; we pray and hope Nigeria continues to reap the dividends of democracy.

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

“We also met with Nigeria Consul-General in Johannesburg, Mr. Abdukmalik Ahmed, and discussed 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.

NAN reports that NICASA comprises 70,000 Nigerians from across various ethnic backgrounds living in South Africa.
