Senate Tells Nigeria To Demand Ceasefire In Gaza, 2-State Solution To Israeli-Palestinian Crisis


The Nigerian Senate has asked the Federal Government to collaborate with other countries to call for a ceasefire in the Israel/Hamas conflict.

Following Hamas militants launching an attack that left 1,400 dead in Israel, most of them civilians, the Israeli military has relentlessly bombarded Gaza, the base of the assailants.

The death toll in Gaza has surpassed 10,000 people.

Referencing the Nigerian civil war and the concomitant horror encountered by Nigerians, the Senate equally urged the United Nations to revisit the issue of a two-state solution as a proposed framework for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In a motion moved by Senator Abdulrahman Kawu from Kano South on Tuesday, the Senate (after an extensive debate), described the emerging figures of death and displacement from the war as horrendous. Lending their voices to the international community, the lawmakers condemned the killings on both sides while suing for peace, particularly to avoid a degeneration into a world war 3.

This call comes 24 hours after the UN amplified the need for a urgent ceasefire, describing Gaza as a graveyard for children as the death toll exceeds 10,000.
