The senior pastor of the Second Coming Gospel Church of Jesus Christ, Adewale Giwa, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to offer victims of xenophobia automatic jobs in order to make their lives more comfortable while they are in Nigeria.
In a statement signed and made available to Latest Nigeria newspaper on Monday, the cleric said the gesture would be helpful to encourage other Nigerians in South Africa who had not yet decided.
Latest Nigeria Newspaper report that It is said that some 400 Nigerians have returned to the country following the directive of the Federal Government that all victims of xenophobia can return freely.
However, Giwa said: “The federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari should offer automatic jobs to all victims of xenophobia in South Africa.
“You can’t just ask someone to come home without making sure they have something tangible to do to feed their family members.
“We all know that this government is still struggling to provide jobs for people in their homes, but the case of our people in South Africa must be treated accordingly.
“I ask the federal government to make them happy. Those with educational qualifications must receive automatic jobs, while those without credentials must have power.
“The world is watching and waiting to see how the government would compensate them.”
