Minority leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe has begged the Federal government of Nigeria to do more than diplomatic rhetoric and force the government of South Africa to stop the attacks and killings of Nigerians living there.
Enyinnaya said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Uchenna Awom today in Abuja.
He disclosed that the attack is barbaric and unwarranted.
His words, “That being the case, our government must go beyond diplomatic niceties and ensure the protection of our people living in that country henceforth.
“The presidency must stamp their feet on the ground and call that government to order.
“We have an emergency, this is not the time to play good guy on international diplomacy.
The gory picture of our people being slaughtered on the streets of South Africa in recent times lowers our collective spirit, even as it tends to diminish Nigeria’s prestige in the committee of nations.”
“It is very unfortunate, inhumane and runs against the grains of our African brotherhood.”
