Nigeria‘s Consul-General in South Africa Ambassador Uche Ajulu-Okeke has said Nigeria and South Africa are planning to sign an agreement on a post bank and agriculture.
Ajulu-Okeke said the Federal Government was exploring opportunities through a private consortium to link Post Bank of South Africa with NIPOST.
She said the Federal Government was exploring the opportunity through a private consortium to see how Post Bank of South Africa and NIPOST of Nigeria could work together. According to her, if the plan works, Nigerians in South Africa could go to post bank and pay money while their relations would get it in form of Western Union from the post office.
Ajulu-Okeke also said an agreement being planned would enable the country to harness the potentials inherent in its good arable land to boost agricultural production.
On the prospects for Nigerian companies, she said a South African firm is already interested in the huge rubber plantations in Imo, Abia and Edo states. She promised to harness every opportunity for the good of the country.
