Adewale Giwa, the Senior Pastor of the Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to give automatic jobs to Nigerian returnees from South Africa with a view to making life comfortable for them while in the country.
The cleric in a statement stated that the decision would go a long way to encourage other Nigerians in South Africa to reconsider the option of staying behind.
According to the report, 640 Nigerians are set to return to the country following the directives of President Buhari that all victims of xenophobia are free to return.
However, Giwa said, “The Federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari should please offer automatic jobs to all the victims of xenophobia 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.”
“The world is watching and waiting to see how the government would compensate them.”
