Russia-Ukraine war: Buhari vows to defend Nigerians

Amid the Russia-Ukraine war, President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to defend Nigerians in any part of the world.

The President gave the assurance on Thursday in Nairobi, Kenya, at a Townhall Meeting with a group of Nigerians.

“We shall continue to defend the interests of all Nigerians wherever they may be. We have demonstrated this over time. We did it in Libya, South Africa.

“We have just commenced doing the same in Ukraine, where thousands of our citizens, especially students, are trapped by the war between Russia and Ukraine”, he said.

Buhari commended the diasporans in Kenya for the unity that exists among them, and peace with their host communities.

The leader, represented at the parley by Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffery Onyeama, urged them to respect the laws and be good ambassadors of Nigeria.

He noted that the determination to forge a partnership with the ‘Ambassadors-at large’ led to the establishment of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM).

Buhari says his administration is forging ahead with the provision of critical infrastructure despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and terrorists.
