FG To Evacuate Its Nationals From Ukraine

The House of Representatives has asked for the urgent evacuation of Nigerians who are currently in the country of Ukraine.

Several explosions were heard throughout Ukraine after Russian President Vladimir Putin declared a military action there on Thursday, prompting the country’s foreign minister to warn that a “full-scale invasion” was beginning.

Lawmakers, on the other hand, are worried that there are a large number of Nigerian students in Ukraine who might get caught up in the crossfire of the conflict.

Representative Ahmed Munir proposed the resolution at a plenary session on Thursday afternoon.

However, other MPs believe that it may already be too late since the evacuation should have taken place a long time ago.

According to a legislator named Leke Abejide, the House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, agreed to meet with the Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, to discuss the possibility of evacuating Nigerian citizens from Ukraine by Monday, February 28.

The House Committee on Foreign Affairs has been tasked with maintaining contact with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

An explosion was heard in the Ukrainian city of Kyiv as well as numerous other places shortly after Putin made his declaration.

Weeks of intensive diplomacy and the introduction of Western sanctions on Russia failed to dissuade Putin, who had amassed between 150,000 and 200,000 soldiers around Ukraine’s border with the Russian Federation at the time.

President Vladimir Putin called on Ukrainian forces to lay down their weapons and justified the operation by alleging that the Ukrainian government was directing a “genocide” in the country’s eastern regions.

The Kremlin has previously said that rebel commanders in eastern Ukraine had requested Moscow’s assistance in their fight against the Ukrainian government.
