Speaker of the House Femi Gbajabiamila made this known at a news conference on Friday in Abuja.

He said that there ought to be urgency for demanding nothing less than total commitment to revoking the old arrangements that had made such abominations against Nigerians possible.

According to Gbajabiamila, Nigeria has demonstrated its commitment to the brotherhood of nations, sacrificing life, labour and wealth to achieve peace and restore freedom from Sierra Leone to Liberia, Sao Tome to South Africa.

Gbajabiamila said that Nigeria’s commitment had always been to the advancement of Africa, freedom in all lands and prosperity for all African peoples.

The speaker said that those who are tempted to respond to the latest incidents with violence and destruction in communities should resist such temptation.
