The South African President, Mr Jacob Zuma, is scheduled to pay a one-day official visit to Nigeria on Tuesday, an official said on Sunday.
Mr Sonni Yusuf, the Nigerian High Commissioner in South Africa, said in Pretoria that the visit was to further strengthen the relationship between the two countries.
“Yes, I can confirm to you that President Jacob Zuma will be paying a one-day official visit to Nigeria on Tuesday, April 16.
“All the required visas have been issued to all the members of his delegation.
“I must say it is an official visit and not a state visit,’’ Yusuf said.
He said that Zuma and his Nigerian counterpart would discuss and consult on regional and continental issues during the visit.
