EndSARS: Nigerian Govt Reaches Out To UK Over Sanction Threat





The Federal Government, on Wednesday, revealed that it has reached out to the British Government over the threat by the UK Parliament, to impose sanctions on Nigerian officials over their roles in the EndSARS protests.



The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, stated this while fielding questions from State House reporters at the end of the weekly virtual Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.



According to him, the Nigerian government has reached out to present its own side of the story.



Onyeama also argued that lawmakers are not responsible for imposing sanctions.





“Yes, we have reached out to the UK government. The meeting that took place were Parliamentarians and they do not speak for the UK government which acts for the United Kingdom and they have also heard the side of the (Nigerian) government regarding everything that has happened.



“So, we have been in touch with them and engaging with them. Of course, as in any democracy, the members of parliament are able to also able to air their view.



“But what is important, is that a balanced picture is made available to them, before they take any decision,” Onyeama said.
