Kiir sends new South Sudan Ambassador to Nigeria


President Salva Kiir Mayardit has dispatched a new South Sudan ambassador to Nigeria.

In a statement by the presidency, Kiir bade farewell to Amb. David Muom Chot who the president appointed recently as the country’s envoy to Nigeria.

“His Excellency President Salva Kiir Mayardit on Thursday bade farewell to South Sudan ambassador designate to Federal Republic of Nigeria, David Buom Chot,” the presidency statement reads in part.

“President Kiir and the Ambassador-designate discussed mutual areas of cooperation between South Sudan and Nigeria,” it added.

The newly-appointed diplomat further said he “will deepen bilateral relations between the two countries” and added that he “will work according to South Sudan’s foreign policy with Nigeria.”
