A former vice-president of African Development Bank, Dr Bisi Ogunjobi, has cautioned the Federal Government against imposing sanctions on South African over the unabating xenophobic attacks on Nigerians.

Ogunjobi, who is the current Pro-Chancellor of Samuel Adegboyega University, Ogwa, Edo State, stated this in Abuja on Monday during shortly after he received the prestigious award of the Fellow of the Nigerian Economic Society.

He said rather than impose economic sanctions on the South Africa, the Federal Government should employ dialogue and diplomacy.

He said, “Nigeria should embrace dialogue and diplomacy in resolving the issue with South Africa. No matter what the situation is as of now, we cannot wish away South Africa or our relationship with them.”
