Nigeria Union in South Africa now affiliated to international body

21 July 2015, 07:58

Johannesburg - The Nigeria Union in South Africa is now affiliated to the South African United Foreigners Trade Union (SAFU), an international body comprising of entrepreneurs in that country.

Dr Anthony Usenbo, the Vice President of the Nigeria Union, made this known in Johannesburg on Monday.

"SAFU is a union that tends to bring all foreign business entrepreneurs in South Africa under one umbrella in order to cater for their well being as well as ensure proper marketing and protection of their goods and services.

"It has become necessary to form a body that will liaise with government to ensure that trade is not hampered due to unnecessary violence that may erupt from time to time," he said.

Usenbo said the new body would provide an avenue for people to exchange business ideas and partner on trade-related matters.

Usenbo, who said that it was important for Nigeria to play an active role in the international body, added:

"For now, the works are being laid out.

"We are at the developmental stage and it is very crucial at this build up stage that Nigerian Union places itself strategically so as to ensure that the interest of Nigeria and foreign partners are protected.

"The body is working closely with the South African government and respective organs of government to ensure free and safe trade for all."
