The WEF is not the only thing to be boycotted. The whole of South Africa and all its stands for inclusive. We're powerfully scary. Nigerians are giants, they won't want to witness our awakening!@renoomokri @NGRPresident

First of many moves to come, more boycotting required. Let us focus on Nigerian own businesses, help them to become multinational companies also. We have the market size, it should count for something, in longterm is our economy that will grow.

Baba, Buhari , you just took one of the best decisions. SA should begin to respect other nations. 10 years of xenophobic attacks is enough test of patience. @MBuhari @ProfOsinbajo

If the govt has attended the forum in South Africa it could have led to uproar here in Nigeria. There is much tension in the land. Govt is sensitive indeed.

Good move but @CyrilRamaphosa virtually has nothing to loose with @MBuhari boycott, the xenophobic attacks are a deliberate attempt by South Africa to prevent other African nationals from dominating them,their politicians know what they are doing.
