President Bola Tinubu met privately with President Cyril Ramaphosa in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Thursday.

The President also used the meeting to call for collaboration to find answers to the difficulties facing the African continent.

Tinubu has been in South Africa since Tuesday to witness the inauguration of Ramaphosa, who was recently elected to a second term in government.

Ajuri Ngelale, the Presidential Spokesman, revealed that before the closed-door meeting at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Johannesburg, President Ramaphosa congratulated President Tinubu for accepting the invitation to his inauguration.


“Thank you so much for coming for the inauguration. I was very happy to see my brother at the ceremony,” the South African President said.

Tinubu stated that President Ramaphosa’s inauguration speech addressed the majority of the difficulties that African nations confront, as well as the need for more collaboration among leaders and citizens to find answers.

“I really enjoyed your speech at the ceremony. I was delighted listening to you. We have lots of issues in common, and we need to work more closely together. It was a good celebration,” Tinubu stated.

On Friday, June 14, 2024, President Ramaphosa was re-elected to a second term after the African National Congress (ANC) and the Democratic Alliance (DA) reached an agreement to form a Government of National Unity.
