The Senate has called upon the Federal Government to collaborate with other nations in urging a ceasefire in the Israel/Hamas conflict. Since October 7, the Israeli military has been conducting relentless airstrikes on Gaza following an attack by Hamas militants that resulted in around 1,400 deaths in Israel, mostly civilians according to Israeli authorities.
On the other hand, Hamas-run health ministry reports a death toll of over 10,000 in Gaza, including more than 4,000 children.
Drawing parallels with the Nigerian civil war and the suffering endured by Nigerians, the Senate has also urged the United Nations to reconsider the idea of a two-state solution as a proposed framework for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Senator Abdulrahman Kawu from Kano South moved this motion during a Senate session. After a thorough debate, the Senate expressed horror at the rising death toll and displacement caused by the conflict, condemned the killings on both sides, and called for peace, especially to prevent the situation from escalating into a global conflict.
This call for a ceasefire follows a similar plea by the UN, emphasizing the urgent need for a ceasefire in Gaza, where the death toll has now exceeded 10,000.
