Sept 4, 2013 – FG Orders Evacuation Of Nigerians In Syria “Nigeria Likely To Support Military Action Against Syria” – Foreign Affair Minister

On Monday Sept 2nd, 2013, the Nigerian Federal government has ordered the immediate evacuation of Nigerian citizens in Syria following a series of chemical weapon attacks in the crisis-ridden country.

This was made known by Martin Uhoimoibhi, the PM of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The ambassador told newsmen on Monday in Abuja after a training for mid-level Swiss diplomats.

Martin said the Federal Government has ordered embassy staffs to ensure the safety of Nigerians in Syria in case of any military action by the US & it’s allies.

“We have asked our embassy to arrange for Nigerians to have a safe passage. In fact, this has been on for years. We do not have many Nigerians there any more. The embassy had since relocated a large chunk of its staff and only a very small number is left. This has been on for, at least, two years. So everyone is ready for the situation as it evolves.” – Uhoimoibhi told reporters

On whether Nigeria will support military action by the US, he said: “Why ask me the position of the Nigerian military? That is not mine to determine. We are very proud members of the United Nations (UN) and I am sure Nigeria’s action will be determined by the UN.”

    There will be no peace in the world, my friends try to read your bible, bible said that the world will be be tumbling and tumbling until the owner takes power, the book of Daniel 2 vers 44 said that in the days of those kings….remember when Satan was driven out from the heaven, the Angels shouted and and said woe to the earth and the Seas..remember Angolo American is the last world power, the book of Rev said that they will be too powerful but will not last long.the read reve chapter 16 vers 16 that there is a graet approching war called Harmagidon, very very close.
