The House of Representatives during a plenary session on Thursday 24th February 2022 called for the immediate evacuation of Nigerians in Ukraine.

Recall, The Nigeria Embassy in Kyiv issued a statement on Thursday urging Nigerians resident in Ukraine to be calm, vigilant and responsible for their personal safety and relocation. 

Lawmakers are, however, concerned that there are many Nigerian students in Ukraine who could be caught in the crossfire.

Hon. Ahmed Munir during plenary on Thursday  moved the motion for the immediate evacuation of Nigerians in Ukraine.

But some lawmakers fear that it may be too late as the evacuation should have been done long ago.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, agreed with a lawmaker, Leke Abejide, to interact with the Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema to evacuate Nigerians from Ukraine by Monday, February 28.

The House Committee on Foreign Affairs has been mandated to liaise with the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
