In the meantime, the Nigerian federal government has distanced itself from suggestions that it was considering slapping sanctions on Russia because of the conflict in Ukraine.

Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of Foreign Affairs, said that some people mistook his statement on the United Nations’ (UN) efforts in the present drama as implying that Nigeria will impose sanctions on Russia.

The Minister clarified in a statement issued Thursday by his media aide, Sarah Sanda, that what he meant was that Nigeria would act within the framework of the United Nations (UN) to take action against Russia in the continuing war.
The statement stressed, however, that no UN action will be taken because Russia would very certainly veto any such effort, according to Gistlobby.

A portion of the statement reads: “We would operate within the UN system, and if there was a UN Resolution that we were obligated to follow, but there would not be since Russia has a veto power.”
