  • This suggestion should be carries out by the president and he shouldn't be sluggish in taking decisions like because the world are actually awaiting his decision concerning the xenophobia that happen in SA on Nigerian and other Africans country. 

    He should make his decision as fast as possible without thinking of the outcome please.

  • I don't think the president should nationalize all the South Africa businesses and make them NIGERIAN property because even that won't Solve this xenophobic attacks. And if we claims the south Africa business, that will probably make the south Africans even more furious.

  • It isn't a bad idea though but we should remember that some Nigerians are also having businesses over there so the best thing is to just address our differences peacefully and let peace reign if this should happen then I am sure they wouldn't stay and do nothing either.

    I believe there are better ways of making peace...

  • Nationalizing Mtn won't be the end of xenophobia, the government should do something about it, cos our brothers and sisters there are the ones suffering more.

    By now actions should have been taken. 

    I plead on the federation to do something about this xenophobic attacks.

  • Well, if that's a threat for the South African government to be up and doing as regards the xenophobia attacks, that would be a good threat but in the reality, taking  over those businesses will  further intensify  the xenophobic attacks.

  • I think to nationalize MTN, shoprite and other belonging of South Africa in Nigeria is a very welcome idea, because life and properties of Nigerians have been destroyed and set to blaze in South Africa, so, I think there is need for Nigerian government to hijack their properties in replacement.

  • Concerning this advice from the party to president Muhammadu Buhari...... I wouldn't say its a good advice and I wouldn't say it's a bad idea.... 

    the reason why it's a good advice is that this would motivate the owner of the telecommunication company who is a South African to take drastic steps towards finding a lasting solution to the Xenophobia attack by the South Africans on Nigerians 

    The reason why I said its not a good advice is that even though these companies are owned by South Africans,in one way or the other its impact on our economy cannot be over emphasized and moreover it is to be noted that there are Nigerians that are major shareholders in the country

    What will be their fate?

  • I am in support of that, because if he should nationalized it, no one will be destroying anything when the SA start their violence killing again. We all know that if MTN is being destroyed, it's going to affect everyone of us. 

    1. Those Nigerians working with MTN  will loss their job.

    2. Majority of Nigerians are using MTN as their business line, therefore it will be hard for their client/customers to get in touch with them if MTN stops working.

  • Good call but are we prepared for Nigerians in SA to lose their businesses to the SA government too? Let's not forget most Nigerian politicians have businesses setup in SA. Would they want to lose them like that?

  • This will be better and let see the outcome

    Because when he was minister of petroleum we stopped having issues with rise and falls of price in petrol

    May God intervene

    - Daud Adeoye - 2019-09-06 06:02:38 Quote

  • Yes

    I think the president should follow the advice

    Nationalizing their properties here is nothing compared to the killings, vandalizing,looting of our brothers and sisters and our property over their

  • Nationalizing MTN, DSTV and Shoprite is not good move irrespective of the advert effects of xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa. Doing that would amount to retaliation by the government of Nigeria. And this may scare prospective foreign investors away. The president has to seek for competent advise before dancing to the tone of his party APC advice.

  • Then APC must be really sick if they think that Buhari should nationalise South African businesses over xenophobic attack, the best for them to do is to come to an agreement to end this cos if they go ahead to nationalise the business then the number of unemployment will surely increase and crime rate will become a problem in this country. God bless our country.

  • I don't think that is  a good decision not withstanding the dirty deeds of South Africans name Xenophobia, to avoid African Union intervening, that's their source of income, maybe another punishment should be inflicted. 

    - Onwukaike John - 2019-09-06 06:52:04 Quote

  • Truth be told, this is the only good advice APC will give Buhari. Our people are being killed on daily basis at such we need to do something that will shake South Africa.

  • APC must be really sick if they think President Buhari should nationalise the South African businesses in Nigeria, what will be their gain if they do? I'd prefer that they calm down and resolve this issue and see how this will affect the citizens of the countries instead of making rash decisions and making a mistakes and to know how many people they'll render jobless and how they will increase the crime rate in the country.

  • To my own opinion.i think to nationalize mtn and other south Africa companies will be a great development to the country,and it will surely makes our country move further

    It was great idea from the party.if the president could take such steps,the citizens will be happy

    - Idiris Opeyemi - 2019-09-06 07:53:22 Quote

  • I think is going to be a problem if the president decide to nationalized all of these South African enterprises. The president should try and resolve the issue at hand first.

    - Jerry Rinas - 2019-09-06 08:05:57 Quote

  • I think that might be a hard thing to do unless the government makes them leave with a higher tariff or taxes. But to just take over their businesses? That will be very very difficult to achieve

    - Olusegun Ayodeji ademola - 2019-09-06 09:30:40 Quote

  • Buhari should not just sit down and be watching ooo, this issues are so serious that i think insider may be of contribution to its. Rescuing our people from the dnager is not just okay. He should find something to do.

    Or else if he thinks nobody can remove him from the post he his, he shouldn't let go of the situation because, because "THERE IS NO CHANCE IN HELL".

  • Many Nigerians believed that shoprite is owned by south Africans. They are repatriating money purely from franchise, but the capital with which these shopping malls were built were Nigeria's. This is a task for the government to review the agreement that gave South Africans power to develop our commercial lives.

    - Olorunsanu Timothy - 2019-09-06 10:38:12 Quote

  • I think the APC all progressive Congress party are very right because the constant damage and attacks against these companies are rendering most nigerians jobless which may yield to poverty,if nationalized the attacks will stop and everything will be back to normal

    This is a very brilliant suggestion from the party

  • This would have been easy if IBB signed that letter they brought years ago for MTN and DSTV to be situated here in Nigeria..But he refused so we have to suffer for it

    Because dstv is owned by a Nigerian by birth but European by nationality

    Nigerian has a lot to make it but I feel pained that we have refused to see the gold we posses 

    - Eka Ntuen - 2019-09-06 11:22:18 Quote

  • Yes of course, that will be a great move and a huge development in the country, am happy seeing APC party doing this.
    Also,If something like Xenophobia occur in the neatest future which I hope it doesn't, we won't be troubled at losing all those businesses because it is already ours.

  • Is it possible? Before the innovation of those enterprises, i  want to believe that it was duly signed and endorsed by the two countries, for Nigeria to take over those enterprises, must equally follow the same protocol.

    - Sanusi Abubakar - 2019-09-06 13:02:01 Quote

  • It will be difficult for the president to that now because of the way our past leaders handled the Memorandum of understanding when these companies came into Nigeria by not considering what the future holds.

  • I am a fan of Buhari but I won't support the idea of APC to Nationalize MTN in Nigeria. This is because it won't do us any good rather it will bring more problems than the good they think it will bring. Nationalizing Foregin company in Nigeria because of deteriorating relationship is automatically sending message to other foreign investors no to come and invest in Nigeria because their assests/companies will be nationalized if Nigeria have sour relationship with their countries.

    - Hammed Adeoye - 2019-09-06 13:18:04 Quote

  • With the current problems Nigerians are facing in South Africa I think it's time to take drastic measures, I'm not saying that these companies should be Nationalized according to the APC but rather shutdown for the main time until the matter of Xenophobia is properly addressed in South Africa.

    - George Belema - 2019-09-06 15:07:04 Quote

  • Legally, he has no right to do that. MTN is a south aftrican country and except the owner wants this change there is nothing the president can do. At best he can only request they vacate their business from the country and even that will raise serious issues.

    - Israel Ugwu - 2019-09-06 15:19:16 Quote

  • What!..it's so obvious they only want the companies nationalised because of their selfish interest in our country, they know so well Nigerians are the ones behind the success of this companies we are the sole customers!. I oppose this proposal strongly, if the South Africans can stand alone why can't they just run their business in their own coyntrcou while we too run ours here!...Let everyone stay in their countries Biko....enough is enough.

  • What nonsense!!

    APC are not in their right senses how can they advice Buhari by nationalizing MTN in Nigeria when our people are being killed by the South Africans. Buhari Should not heed to their advice.

  • that is really a very deadly idea, and also its call beginning of war, I think  how to settle this case amicably oa what they should be advising him and not leading him to worse the issue by bringing inter-country war, that idea is not fair at all, all africas are one

    - Omoniyi Felix Ifeoluwa - 2019-09-06 18:00:55 Quote

  • I think that's surely the best advice as of this moment. Let those companies be Nationalised and then let them be privatized because these effects of xenophobia will never cease in that country

    - David Oluwafemi - 2019-09-06 21:04:45 Quote

  • Xenophobia is the latest disease in South Africa. This is not about party demand, its about doing what is right. Nigeria need recall our mission center from SA and expel their mission center back home. As for nationalizing the SA corporations its a positive move. Let them go home for now.

  • Well to me, this needs a lot of advice from both professional diplomatic aides, economic aides and Legal aides as, to not incur the wrath of South Africa, if they are going on with it, their should be talks to ensure its done the right way. Having the support of the Law. 

    - Lotana Arthur - 2019-09-07 15:18:36 Quote

  • Am in support of the proposition by APC to the president, with this action it will quicken the authorities in South Africa to call their people into order and declare peace among the countries involved. Africa continent should stand as one not in divination this steps would drive  all African leaders to peaceful coexistence 

    - Ogunleye Mary - 2019-09-08 16:48:03 Quote

  • I think that mr. president should nationalize them because most Nigerians rely on them for their goods and services and burning them down ain't solving any issue.

    I had always presumed that our president Muhammad buhari should hold a personal meeting with the leaders of south Africa to end this menace. Fighting their organisations down here puts no end to nothing 

    - Emmanuel Okeke - 2019-09-10 07:36:27 Quote

  • That's a welcome idea, instead of distroying all S/A businesses in Nigeria, it's better to nationalize it because most Nigerians working with the companies will be unemployed and will a more problem to the country.

  • To me I don't think this is right thing to do in order to make SA suffer for what they did to Nigerian, so all I could say is that the FG of Nigeria and other country's should cut off all the connection between them and south Africa
