Approximately 400 Nigerians are said to have returned to the nation following the policy of the Federal Government that all xenophobic victims are free to return.

Giwa however, 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.
