Xenophobia: Senate Cancels Visit To South Africa

Nigerian Senate Wednesday said it would no longer visit South Africa over the xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in that country. Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, said the upper chamber would instead send a single delegation to South Africa. Before the latest development, the senate had delegated five of its members, led by Ekweremadu, to visit South Africa to convey the opinion of the legislature on the attacks on Nigerian nationalities. It is however uncertain if the House of Representatives would go the way of the senate after appointing Femi Gbajabiamila, house leader, as leader of its five-member delegation.
