Nigeria: ANC, PDP to Partner On Political Relationship

The ruling parties of Nigeria and South Africa, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the Africa National Congress (ANC), have agreed to partner in order to strengthen political relationship between the two countries.

This was made known by the Treasurer General of ANC Mathews Phosa, who told State House correspondents after meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan in the company of stalwarts of the PDP led by its chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.

"The purpose of the visit is to further strenghten the relationship between the ANC and the PDP. Nigeria and South Africa are very important African countries although there are others too. The two countries united together will make a serious contribution towards certain direction of the continent," Phosa said.
