I hope they will go back to the South Africa from what I heard from President Ramaphosa. Like I said, the meeting that President Buhari and President Ramaphosa will have during the first week of October should smooth the ground.
And the right statements and the right action coming from both sides should encourage our people to go back.But, as I have always said that Nigerians living outside Nigeria must try to be good citizens of wherever they live, Obasanjo,"said.

According to him, the South African president is ready to bring back the mutual understanding between Nigeria and South Africa.
