ABUJA – Minister of Police Affairs, Abdul Adesiyan, has described people  accusing of not doing enough to address current challenges as uncharitable and lacking in patriotism.

Adesiyan said this when he received Ambassador and Head of delegation of to Nigeria, Mr Michel Arrion, in Abuja on Wednesday.

Arrion was accompanied by a team from Economic Community of West African (ECOWAS).

He said in spite of the evil machinations of the terrorists and their sponsors, the “ spirit will always overcome’’.

He said was unfair for the opposition to dwell under the dynamism of the political system and the freedom of speech guaranteed by Jonathan’ administration to rundown the government.

Adesiyan said there was verifiable evidence that government was addressing the challenge, adding that the country would remain united and indivisible.

He expressed concern over recourse by the opposition to negative, rather objective criticism, all in their desire to mislead the international community about happenings in the country.

The minister called on the international community not to form opinions based on reports alone but on-the-spot assessments of the situation in Nigeria.

Earlier, Arrion said they were in the country to explore new ways to collaborate with the government on how to curtail the current challenges.

He said they were also interested in forging an alliance on the supply and improvement of energy which were central to the realisation of objectives of nations. (NAN)
