Xenophobia: Pastor Giwa urges President Buhari to give returnees automatic employment

Senior Pastor of the Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, Adewale Giwa has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to offer victims of xenophobia automatic jobs

This he said should be done with a view to making life comfortable for them after returning from South Africa.

Pastor Giwa in a statement issued on Monday from the United States of America said the gesture would go a long way  in providing succour for the returnees.

He added that the move would also encourage other Nigerians in South Africa who had not yet to make up their minds to follow suit

He said, “The Federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari should please offer automatic jobs to all the victims of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

“You cannot just ask someone to come home without making sure that they have something tangible to do to feed their family members.

“We all know that this government is still struggling to provide jobs for the people at home, but the case of our people in South Africa should be treated accordingly.

“I am appealing to the federal government to make them happy. Those with educational qualifications should be given automatic jobs while those who don’t have credentials should be empowered” A total of 640 Nigerians are willing to leave south Africa on Wednesday

This figure may rise as more Nigerians living in the former apartheid country are expected to show interest.
