#XenophobicAttacks: Nigerians React To Fayemi, El-Rufai and Ezekwesili’s Visit To South Africa
Nigerians are not happy with the fact that Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and his Kaduna State counterpart, Governor El-Rufai, are in South Africa despite the current killing of Nigerians in the country.
Oby Ezekwesili’s presence in South Africa has also sparked outrage. She is in the country for the World Economic Forum on Africa.
The trio being in South Africa hasn’t gone down well with citizens of Nigeria, who showed their disappointment on Twitter.
Aunty @obyezeks you’re properly very educated but unfortunately you failed to understand that those who are being attacked in SA, where you’re at the moment, are also private citizens, we all thought you’d sympathize with them and boycott the @wef to properly protest the attacks. https://t.co/7SBxnWhzMj

El Rufai and Fayemi are trying to 'attract funding' to in a country where their fellow citizens are being slaughtered like chicken.
Those two clearly places more value on the funding they hope to attract than their fellow citizens being killed there.

Dear Gov Fayemi, Gov Elrufai & Emir Sanusi, SHAME on you guys too.

I can bet Fayemi and El Rufai were supposed to be a part of the FG delegation until the last minute withdrawal. Now all of a sudden they are representing their states and not Nigeria.
