The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday called for an end to hostiles between Israel and Palestine, particularly in Gaza.
The lawmakers also called on the Nigerian government to collaborate with other countries to ensure that there is a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
The resolution was reached on a motion sponsored by Mohammed Aliero (PDP, Kebbi Central) and co-sponsored by Kawu Sumaila (NNPP, Kano South) at the plenary.
Premium Times reported that Mr Aliero, while presenting the motion, asked the Senate to encourage the Nigerian government to support a two-state solution as a permanent solution to the Israel-Palestine crisis.
The majority of the senators supported the motion through a voice vote and the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, subsequently approved the prayers and directed the clerk of the national assembly to transmit resolutions of the senate to the president.
