Nigerian Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, on Monday said the federal government does not condone Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Onyeama said the Federal Government would act in accordance with the United Nations. According to him, the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration will comply with UN resolution should sanctions be imposed on Putin’s Russia.

The Minister recalled that when Russian launched the assault last week, the Federal Government condemned the action, recognizing the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

“We made that very clear, we condemned it. First of all, military force is not the solution. We have spoken up abut the territorial integrity that we recognize the integrity of Ukraine,” he said.

“As we speak, in the UN General Assembly, there is a resolution on this whole issue. Nigeria’s position on the resolution is very clear, that we do not condone this military intervention in another country
