Xenophobic Attacks: Why Nigeria Won't Retaliate Now - Gbajabiamila by BeeBeeOoh(m): 4:24am On Mar 08, 2017
Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has said that retaliation would be the last resort in the efforts being made by the Federal Government to resolve the continued xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.


Gbajabiamila, who is leading the House six-man delegation to South Africa, next Monday, explained that the retaliation would be detrimental to both countries. Addressing House correspondents yesterday on why the House leadership decided to send a delegation to South Africa, the majority leader said during the 5-day trip, the lawmakers would interface with the South African Parliament and discuss the possibility of both countries enacting hate crime laws, adding that it would cover crimes committed based on nationality.


He said that the delegation intended to engage the South African Parliament and other authorities on areas of mutual benefit and how much both countries could lose from Xenophobia and possible retaliatory actions or severing of diplomatic ties.


He stated further that they would also seek to strengthen the Nigerian /South African Bilateral Commission which only exists on paper for now. “We hope to meet with Nigerians who reside in South Africa and assure them of government’s intervention.


“We will advance and hopefully get a commitment on the need for payment of compensation for the victims of this last attack,” he said. Also speaking on whether Nigeria was afraid to take strict action against South Africa, Gbajabiamila said that retaliation was not the first step to diplomacy, adding that cutting of ties and retaliation are always the last resort.

How much dignity do we treat ourselves with within the country? Don't you realise these people read about and see images of jungle justice, police brutality, army brutality, ethnoreligious intolerance, political rascality, corruption, etc? The way a man treats his wife at home in the presence of his visitors is the same way they regard her outside her home.

Even though it's a last resort, I never really liked the idea of retaliation. Innocent people may get victimised in the process


I see it as a case of two wrongs not making it right

In otherwords, you people are going to see how you can beg them to cooperate with you?
I would have preferred they summon the south africans to come apologize (with compensations) and advance how they will prevent future occurrences since they are the offenders.

We really have jokes as leaders in a country that claims to be giant of Africa... Is this how USA, Britain, Russia etc will respond to this?

What's tha business?

Just take a look at yourself omenka, here you are talking about army brutality when you and your likes always cheer Buratai and his men up whenever you hear/read about their brutality towards Ipob, shites and innocent Nigerians for putting on the military camo. Oga swerve one side jare.
