A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Femi Fani-Kayode, has urged President Bola Tinubu to condemn the killing of children and women in Gaza.
Fani-Kayode urged Tinubu to join world leaders in calling for an unconditional ceasefire in Gaza.
The former Aviation Minister made the call while faulting the bombing of Gaza by the Israeli Defence Force.
Posting on X on Tuesday, Fani-Kayode wrote: “If Hamas were to seize and occupy an Israeli town, would the Israeli Defence Force bomb the city into a sea of rubble and slaughter thousands of innocent Israeli men, women, and children all in an attempt to crush the terrorists?If the answer is no, there can be no justification whatsoever for what is going on in Gaza today.
“The objective must be to crush Hamas and not to murder or eliminate the Palestinian people and every single man, woman, and child in Gaza.
“I urge our courageous and amiable leader, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (@officialABAT), and the Nigerian Government to join others from all over the world and condemn the mass murder, genocide, and ethnic cleansing of innocent women and children that is going on in Gaza today and call for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire. The Lord wills it and justice demands it!”
