The Federal Government has urged for a reduction in hostilities amidst the Israel-Hamas conflict.
In a statement released by Ambassador Yusuf Tuggar, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, deep concern was expressed regarding the recent eruption of hostilities between Israel and Hamas in Abuja.
Ambassador Tuggar said that the cycle of violence and retaliation that the current escalation has assumed only “served to perpetuate an unending cycle of pain and suffering for the civilian population, it consequently called for ceasefire in the interest of the vulnerable civilians.
“The government also called for restraint and the need to prioritise the safety of civilians by giving room for humanitarian considerations.”
“The Federal Government of Nigeria is deeply concerned about the outbreak of hostilities between Israel and Hamas in the early hours of Saturday, 7th October, 2023 and calls for de-escalation and ceasefire”
“The cycle of violence and retaliation that the current escalation has assumed, only serves to perpetuate an unending cycle of pain and suffering for the civilian population, that bear the brunt of every conflict.”
“The Federal Government of Nigeria, therefore, calls on both sides to exercise restraint, prioritize the safety of civilians and give room for humanitarian considerations. We are therefore calling for a peaceful resolution of the conflict through dialogue.”
