Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said that the Green Chamber may reconvene to address the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other foreigners in South Africa.
According to him on his verified twitter handle, the Speaker said:
“Will be cutting short my trip to Tanzania for the 50th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference @CPA_Secretariat and will be leaving today, for the leadership of the @HouseNGR to consider cutting short the recess and reconvening for one day to address the killings of Nigerians in SA.”
The Speaker is currently attending the 50th Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (Africa Region) conference holding in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
Foreigners in South Africa especially Nigerians, have been the targets of attacks since last week when a taxi driver was killed by an alleged drug peddler in Pretoria.
