Don’t cross the line, Onyeama advises diplomatic community


The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, has warned the diplomatic community against crossing the line on governance in Nigeria.

Onyeama who briefed the diplomatic community on the rescheduled general elections in Abuja said the community could not exhort Nigeria on good governance and dictating to the country on how to govern.

The meeting which held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was to interact with the diplomatic corps to clarify issues surrounding the postponement of the elections and the country’s readiness as the polls come up on Saturday.

In the run-up to the elections, the Federal Government had on several occasions raised concerns about what it described as interference from foreign bodies.

Onyeama said: “At the end of the day, we are a sovereign nation and the line shouldn’t be crossed from exhorting us and wanting us to succeed and wanting this to be a really democratic process to dictating to us and really getting into the nitty-gritty of how we run the country which is exclusively the responsibility of this government.”
