President Cyril Ramaphosa will next week Monday honour an invitation to attend the inauguration of President-Elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

President Ramaphosa will join a number of his continental counterparts who will be in attendance at this occasion.

“President’s participation will demonstrate continuity in the strategic relationship between South Africa and Nigeria,” Cabinet said in a statement on Thursday.

Nigeria is South Africa’s biggest trade partner in West Africa. A broad range of South African firms have invested in Nigeria, while Nigerian companies are also developing a footprint in South Africa.
