The House of Representatives has summoned the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri to brief the House on the challenges associated with the evacuation of Nigerians stranded in Sudan.
The House also invited officials from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
Gbajabiamila issued the invite today at the resumption of plenary.
It would be recalled that the ongoing civil war in Sudan has led to the emergency evacuation of Nigerians in the war-torn country.
The Nigerian officials had claimed that it would take One point two million dollars to evacuate 3,500 Nigerians through Egypt; however, the evacuation plan has been besieged by problems.
