Nigeria initiates peace move in GAZA fight. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League have named Nigeria to a special committee tasked with launching swift international action to end the continuing conflict in Gaza.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, made this known in a statement on Tuesday.

According to Tuggar, the selection was communicated to Nigeria by the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja.

Tuggar said the decision was taken in furtherance to the resolution adopted at the Joint Arab Islamic Extraordinary Summit on Israeli aggressions against the Palestinian people, which took place in Riyadh on Saturday.

The resolution that bears Nigeria’s membership in the peace team, according to the minister, states the following:

“Assign the Foreign Minister of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the 32nd Arab and Islamic Summit, along with counterparts from Jordan, Egypt, Qatar, Turkey, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Palestine.”

“Any other interested countries, and the Secretary-General of both organizations to initiate immediate international action on behalf of all member states of the OIC and the Arab League to formulate an international move to halt the war in Gaza.

“To pressure for a real and serious political process to achieve a permanent and comprehensive peace in accordance with established international references.”

Nigeria was invited to the emergency joint Arab-Islamic summit in the Saudi capital Riyadh to discuss the war taking place in the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian territories.

At the summit, Tuggar said Nigeria stood firmly with the two state-solution prescribed by the UN to help bring a stop to the Israeli-Palestinian war.

Tuggar said Nigeria was ready to work collectively to bring an end to the violence and find lasting solutions to the war.

According to him, Nigeria welcomes the OIC’s engagement to strongly support the call for an end to the bloodshed and deaths of innocent civilians.

Tuggar asked, “How many more must die to avenge the act of aggressor?” in response to the excessive use of force against the people of Gaza.

“Where has the rule of law gone?”

“Today, we live in a data-driven world, and the question is where is the evidence that the violence meted out by Israel on Gaza is having any effect on Hamas.”
