Nigeria’s Senate has taken up the Israel-Hamas conflict as it urged the Government to work with the United Nations and other countries of the world for an immediate ceasefire in the ongoing Israeli-Palestine war.
The Senate also urged the federal government to work towards a two-state solution to end the conflict. The issue has left thousands of women, children, and aid workers dead.
The resolutions followed a motion sponsored by Senator Adamu Aliero (PDP, Kebbi) and co-sponsored by 43 others.
Aliero described the casualty figures in the war as horrifying, saying that if not ended immediately, it might lead to World War III.
Other senators who backed the debate include Barau Jibrin (Kano), Enyinaya Abaribe (Abia) and Sani Musa (Niger).
The senators condemned the killings on both sides, calling for an immediate end to the killings and save endangered lives and property.
