Xenophobic Attacks: Federal Lawmaker Calls For Revenge Against South Africa

The member representing Nkwerre/Isu/Nwangele/Njaba Federal Constituency of Imo State, Rt. Hon. Ozurigbo Ugonna, has called for immediate revenge on the sovereign state of South Africa on account of the recent xenophobic attacks which broke out in the former Apartheid State.

Reacting to a motion raised on the floor of the house on The Inhuman nature and Inhuman Activities Called Xenophobic Attacks By South Africans, on Tuesday, the former Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly stated that there was need to carry out a well strategized revenge on South Africa following the xenophobic attacks.

He called on the federal government to revenge now not necessarily by cutting ties with the country but by sitting down with stakeholders to discuss how to build a better and productive Nigeria that will become the cynosure of all eyes like it used to be.

The All Progressives Congress lawmaker recalled that in the early 70s Nigeria was a better place that attracted foreigners but adduced that some of the foreigners chased away from Nigeria went home to build their countries, giving an example of Ghana and Malaysia.

"We need to build a better Nigeria, you can see, Nigrians are now running off to Kigali which was popular for the genocide that occurred there, for holiday" Hon. Ozurigbo said.

Further more, the House Committee Chairman on Justice noted that since the South African government is yet to clearly prove that the attacks won't reoccur, the need to create a better lasting option is the best solution to the maltreatment of Nigerians abroad.

In an emotional laden voice he reiterated that Nigerians are still optimistic about the future which he identified was evidenced as the returnees from South Africa took to singing the National Anthem, insisting that it was a rallying call which needed to be heeded to by the leaders of the nation.

Hon. Ozurigbo also took time to appreciate the owner of Air Peace, Mr. Allen Onyema for his patriotic display as he made available his airline for the rescue of Nigerians stranded in the south African nation.
