Peter Obi Reacts As Buhari Fails To Evacuate Nigerians Trapped In Sudan

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has stated that it is President Muhammadu Buhari’s responsibility to protect Nigerians both at home and abroad. According to report reaching us, the former governor of Anambra State made the revelation after Buhari’s administration made excuses for why Nigerians in Sudan could not be rescued.

Recalls that a war broke out in Sudan last week between the Sudan Armed Forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces over disagreements about the transition to civilian rule, killing 400 people in the process. Peter Obi expressed sadness and concern about Nigerians trapped in Sudan in a series of tweets on Sunday. He urged the federal government of Nigeria to step up efforts to rescue approximately 4000 Nigerians, the majority of whom are students in the country.

According to his tweet he wrote; I’m sad and concerned by the reports that Nigerians trapped in Sudan have not been evacuated. While we understand the extreme challenges in Sudan, we deeply implore the Federal Government of Nigeria to expedite all efforts to rescue about 4000 Nigerians that are mostly students in Sudan to safety.

Moreover, as the Sudanese crisis is not a natural disaster that happened suddenly, it will be sad to lose any Nigerian to the conflict, especially now that we need all hands to create and sustain a New Nigeria.

Since it is the responsibility of the Federal Government Nigeria to protect Nigerians at home in Nigeria and abroad, it is important that we attend to such issues with more deserving proactiveness and commitment as the life of every Nigerian is sacred and important,” he tweeted on his verified twitter handle.
