The Senate has urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to intervene in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas to bring it to an end.
This followed the adoption of a motion titled “Urgent Need to Call for Ceasefire on the Ongoing Conflict Between Israel and Hamas” by senators Adamu Alero (PDP, Kebbi) and Sumalia Kawu (NNPP, Kano) and co-sponsored by 43 others at the plenary on Tuesday.
Presenting the motion, Alero said the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a complex and long-standing conflict that has been going on for over 100 years.
“We should add our voices to other nations assent to a two-state solution for a permanent solution. Let the killing stop and then the world will sit down to negotiate for a permanent two-state solution,” he stated.
