Amnesty International has called for stronger human rights regulations and protection in Nigeria.

Country Director, Amnesty International Nigeria, Isa Sanusi, said this at the Write for Rights Fiesta Agenda 2023 organised by Amnesty International on Wednesday in Abuja.

Sanusi said Amnesty International runs the Write for Rights campaign annually from November to December.

This, he said was in celebration of  the International Human Rights Day to encourage people  to write messages of support to people around the world who have suffered injustice using the power of their words.

He said that Amnesty International was deeply concerned about the human rights situation in Nigeria and called for stronger regulations and adherence to rule of law.

“Consistent failure to address current and past human rights violations is emboldening impunity. The recent air strike on a village in Kaduna is yet another eye opener on escalating disregard for the sanctity of human life.

“We will continue to seek and solicit Nigerian authorities to seriously and thoroughly address human rights concerns in the country.

“President Bola Tinubu must not miss the opportunity to address the human rights challenges, ranging from impunity by law enforcement agencies and rampant attacks and kidnapping of rural communities by gunmen,” he said.

Sanusi said that Amnesty International was running a human rights education programme targeted at young people in schools, especially tertiary institutions.

He said the organisation also targeted informal settlements, where most of the atrocities, human rights abuses and violations took place.
