Move Nigerian Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Buhari Urged

LAGOS—The decision of Israeli government to move its capital to Jerusalem needs to be supported by the Nigerian government.

President Buhari

This view was expressed by Chief Charles Udeogaranya, a chietain of All Progressives Congress, APC, and presidential aspirant of the party in 2019.

In a statement in Lagos yesterday, Udeogaranya said:

“This official action by the Israelites has since been endorsed by the United States president, Donald John Trump. Nigeria being an ally of the United States of America needs to follow suit.

“I am therefore urging our dear President to urgently endorse and follow through by moving our embassy to Jerusalem.

“This singular act will prove to all and sundry that President Buhari has no special attachment to any particular religious group in the country.”
