Otunba Ajayi-Smith is particularly not happy with the officials of those States around the warring countries for openly discriminating against African refugees. Otunba calls on the authorities of those hosting countries to check the behavior of their officials and ensure Africans are equally treated as very important part of humanity.
It is very instructive for the two leaders to consider the pains of billions of world citizens currently going through unprecedent agony as a result of this conflict.
ACDF President also called on the World leaders to promote truce amongst these two warring parties to prevent what could escalate to cause confusion and threating the entire human existence.
The Unite States of America, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, NATO, etc are counselled to thread the path of peace mediators and bring the war to an end immediately. When two elephants’ fights, it is the grass that must feel the brunt sufficiently.
People of the African descent are in every part of this world contributing positively to sustain development of their host communities, they need peace to be able to continue to make their contributions.
Otunba Ajayi-Smith confirmed that the State of the African Diaspora (SOAD) is already talking with some authorities in the neighboring communities of the warring countries to ensure people of African origin are hosted with dignity until their home countries can evacuate them back to their respective countries.
SOAD is also planning to evacuate those that requires urgent attention either to their countries or other countries that may be magnanimous to host them for a short period.
