Xenophobia: IYC Commends Air Peace And Federal Govt Rescue Mission, Says Victims Must Get Justice
Our Government Should Ensure Victims Of The So-called Xenophobia In South African Get Justice, Urged The Federal Government For More Efforts To Tackle The Issue For The Sake Of The Long Relationship Between The Two Countries
The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide has commended the plan by the management of Air Peace Airlines to convey stranded Nigerians in South Africa is highly commendable, speaking with journalists, the IYC President, Barr. Pereotubo Oweilaemi said, IYC commend their patriotic efforts in rendering help to the nation in her point of need. With this singular gesture, the Company has written its name in the threshold of history. Providence will continue to bear witness for you for coming to the rescue of Nigerians in our period of distress.
IYC also commend the Federal government responses to the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians by South Africans. Recalling the Nigerian High Commissioner in the South Africa, sending special envoy to meet with the government of the latter as as well the plans to airlift the stranded Nigerians in that Country back home. Nigerians both at home and in diaspora have felt the impact of the Government’s responses towards our beloved ones in South Africa.
We call on the Government to still commit more efforts to ensure that victims of the xenophobic attacks in South Africa get justice. The protests and condemnations from the various quarters across the Country over the unbridled xenophobia in South Africa are pointer to the fact that Nigerians want justice for the victimised fellow Country men.
Our NASS should also cut short its leave to come and join hands with the Executive to confront the situation. They should not be enjoying leave when our brothers are in dire need of legislative response,”he said.
