Governor Rotimi Akeredolu
Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, on Friday, presented cash gifts of N100,000 to each of the South African returnees of Ondo origin for resettlement activities in their various communities.
Akeredolu, who received the returnees in his office also promised to give necessary support and provide an enabling environment for the returnees to start new lives.
Represented by his deputy, Agboola Ajayi, the governor particularly condemned the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other nationals living in South Africa by the indigenes.
He described the attacks as unwarranted, barbaric and condemnable.
Akeredolu commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his visit to South Africa to condemn the ugly incident and find a lasting solution to it.
He charged the returnees not to be discouraged by what had happened to them but to be ready to start a new life as they returned safely to Nigeria, their fatherland.
