Why Nigeria Is Not A Member Of BRICS-Shettima




Vice President, Kashim Shettima has said that Nigeria did not apply to become a member of of BRICS.

BRICS, is the economic and political Bloc formed by Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

Speaking on Friday, August 25, Shettima said;

“So far, we have not applied for the membership of BRICS. And it is majorly informed by the fact that my principal President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a true democrat that believes in consensus building,” he told Channels Television on the sideline of the BRICS Summit which was held in South Africa.

“There are so many variables that need to be taken into congnizance. We have to evaluate so many tendencies and issues that require engagements with the economic advisory council, the Federal Executive Council, and even the National Assembly before an informed decision towards joining the BRICS would be taken.”

Shettima is representing Nigeria at the summit, and the newly admitted countries would become full members from January 1.
