The Nigerian High Commissioner to South Africa, Ambassador Martin Cobham has claimed that only few Nigerians in South Africa are bad.
He, however, admitted that so many of them contributed and were still contributing positively to the economic development of their host country.
Cobham told newsmen in Pretoria, South Africa on Tuesday that, “it was wrong to brand all Nigerians resident in South Africa as bad people.”
The Ambassador said Nigerian professionals were doing well in different fields and sectors of the South African economy.
“There are more Nigerians contributing positively to the South African economy and other related sectors and I am happy to say that they are doing well.
“It is also important to say good things about such Nigerians.
“The mission has continued to carry out enlightenment campaigns to Nigerians to stay away from crime.
‘’They have also been told to obey the laws of the host country and avoid things that will smear the image of our country,” he said.
According to the high commissioner, Nigerians abroad are expected to exhibit good conduct while the mission will continue to provide advocacy to them.
