Senate seeks ceasefire in Israel-Hamas war


The Senate on Wednesday urged the Federal Government to work with the United Nations and other countries of the world to ensure an immediate ceasefire in the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

It also urged the Federal Government to press for a two-state solution to end the conflict, in which thousands, including women, children and aid workers had been killed.

The resolutions followed a motion sponsored by Senator Adamu Aliero of the Peoples Democratic Party in Kebbi State and co-sponsored by 43 others at the plenary on Tuesday.

Aliero said the casualty figures in the war were horrifying and that if not ended immediately, it may lead to World War III.

Senators who contributed to the debate, including Barau Jibrin (Kano), Enyinaya Abaribe (Abia) and Sani Musa (Niger), all condemned the killings on both sides and called for an immediate end to the killings and save lives and property.
