The Senator representing Ogun Central, Lanre Tejuoso, has said the decision of the National Assembly to send a delegation of lawmakers to South Africa in an effort to stop Xenophobic Attacks on Nigerians was not a jamboree.
He declared that the move was to make the South African parliament responsive and encourage the institution to properly control the executive of the country.
Tejuoso, who is the chairman, Senate Committee on Health, spoke with New Telegraph after he was given an award of excellence at the 2017 Lisabi Festival in Abeokuta.
The Senate had, last week, named a seven-man delegation to South Africa headed by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, to probe the on-going xenophobic attacks.
The House of Representatives also dispatched a six-member team led by the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, on a similar mission.
Tejuoso lamented the failure of the South African authorities to act responsibly and halt vicious attacks on Nigerians living in that country
