We will work with Buhari to save Nigerians in South Africa - Gbajabiamila
Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, on Friday indicated interest in supporting President Muhammadu Buhari in his pledge to protect Nigerians against xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
The Speaker, after a closed door meeting with the president, made it known to the media that Buhari was taking proactive steps to correct the anomalies.
“Engagement with Mr. President is not out of place even on a normal day but these are not normal days.
“The country in the last few days has witnessed unfortunate incidents in South Africa.
“As you are aware, I cut my trip to Tanzania to return with the hope of reconvening the house so that we can discuss this very important issue.
“We have called that off because events have overtaken, the government has taken proactive steps, same we would have taken.
“We are all on the same page with the President and the government,” he said.
