by Kunle Awosiyan

The House of Representatives on Tuesday urged the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Godfrey Onyeama and relevant Agencies to immediately take diplomatic action with Ukrainian authorities to extend humanitarian needs and exit opportunities to Nigerians, including students trapped in the war torn area of Sumy.

The House reached these resolutions, following the adoption of a motion of urgent public importance sponsored by Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, Chairman, House Committee on Diaspora and Toby Okechukwu, Deputy Minority Leader.

The House also asked the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs to interface with, compile and furnish the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Nigeria as well as the Russian Foreign Ministry with a full data of all Nigerians in Ukraine.

Moving the motion, Akande-Sadipe expressed concern over the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces, and its attendant effects and implication for Nigerians living in the area.
