you this sense of salute the prospect of leaving. for the problems of people something that. we need use of. we have seen this sort of wave of populism in parts the world and immigration an immigrant particularly becoming the focus of that and getting caught up in that i'm just wondering from your analysis have the politicians led done or said anything to exploit the xenophobia feelings do they make inflammatory remarks and statements. yes they have there's a video which has speculated on social media here in nigeria it's basically thin says yes it before you would. have been its member the government of egypt tomorrow i think it was a deputy police minister something that was so. specific on the blaming for enough
7:12 am
for the programs of south africa and saying that south south africa should not the other is part of that video that went viral beyond what's up on the nigeria has really helped to push the populous about the issue. and south africa is interesting particularly because of its sort of unique. history having lived under apartheid what more can be done in terms of raising public awareness when it comes to anti racism and equality measures to sort of stop you know certain behavior is repeating itself. well the 1st thing he said occasion there will have to be quite a lot of education on south africa south africa man at the. end of the spectrum they say it's something that's won't be if we stay with that stuff that the reality
7:13 am
however the government they also have to take a lot of responsibility what i see a lot of the sounds they have coming from south africa. i think i'm speaking for a little a jury on the willingness not to read the not is not the willingness to grow supposed to be well it's a willingness to push the lead to some for the people south africa has one of the hazards of inequality the on the continents probably on the wall or the end of nigeria has a very high inequality here it does well and that's the biggest beloveds on the stones of the streets so people think oh there are 3 shows a different amount of it's how big this channel. chat and i was a thank you very much like your now in all the stories we're following the united states and blacklisted what it called an oil for terror network of ships and individuals allegedly directed by iran's revolutionary guards to supply syria with oil iran said it was willing to recommit to the 2015 nuclear dail but only if it

7:15 am
sanctions as well the u.s. is now offering reward money for information as to how the arabian revolutionary guard corps of oil supplies offering money in exchange for such information more than that the iranian special envoy brian rourke has reportedly being sending e-mails to the captains of tankers at sea offering them reward money should they sail the tanker carrying oil into some port with they could be handed over to united states authorities this is unprecedented ratcheting up pressure by the united states but at the same time that special envoy brian hoke says that president trump remains open to buy left rule negotiation the indication perhaps that a meeting is being suggested that the united nations general assembly with the radian leaders omens later this month not so says iran the foreign minister has tweeted out a message saying that the u.s.
