Nigerians in Diaspora urge Armed Forces to sustain improved human rights record

…. reveals plans by Amnesty International to destroy Nigeria

A pan-African Nigerian organisation in the United Kingdom, Arise Nigeria, has hailed the Armed Forces’ incredible successes, urging them to sustain improved human rights record.

The country’s military has risen to the occasion in crippling terrorists and bandits without necessarily stepping out of the ambit of the law despite perpetual pressure from global human right groups such as Amnesty International.

Arise Nigeria gave this commendation in a communique signed by Dr Hale Longman Chairman, Communique Drafting Committee, issued on Monday at the end of its emergency general meeting held in London.

The group applauded the Armed Forces’ compliance with global best practices in human rights in the face of outright falsification of facts and figures.

According to Arise Nigeria, the tremendous improvements in the sustenance of human rights could be attributed to the commitment of the Federal Government to ensure that rights and privileges its citizens are guaranteed at all times.

“ Arise Nigeria notes with enthusiasm that Nigeria has recorded tremendous improvements in the expression of human rights for all of its citizens regardless of ethnic or religious considerations.

“ The Nigerian government has displayed a high sense of commitment to ensuring that issues of human rights violations are given express and adequate attention in a bid to ensure that Nigerians indeed have a sense of belonging in the Nigerian project.

“ The Nigerian state has continued to make improvements in the areas of equality before the law, respect for the human person and the dignity of life through its numerous interventions and positions on matters of human rights violations in recent times.

“ Arise Nigeria thinks that despite the flurry of agitations in Nigeria, the government has been able to abide by the rules of engagement in line with global best practices as evident in the way and manner it has been able to resolve the various issues that threatened the relative peace and tranquillity in Nigeria.

“ Arise Nigeria notes with gratitude that despite the multiple evidences that Nigeria was confronting an external incursion into its domestic affairs by the actions and inactions of non-state actors manifest in the exhibition of violent acts by militant groups in different geopolitical zones in the country, the Nigerian government has been able to rise to the occasion in ensuring that the freedom of expression of its citizens are guaranteed.

“ Arise Nigeria lauds the efforts of the Nigerian government towards ensuring that justice is served and dispersed to all and sundry in a fashion that guarantees freedom of speech and expression.”

However, the group established that some foreign interests, in particular Amnesty International are hiding under the guise of international human rights advocate causing a disintegration of Nigeria.

“ Arise Nigeria also notes that contrary to the position canvassed by organizations such as Amnesty International on the state of human rights violations in Nigeria, Arise Nigeria has been able to identify that the reality on the ground is at direct variance with the facts on the ground.

“ Arise Nigeria commends the Nigerian government for the dexterity with which it has handled the pressure posed by foreign interests bent on causing disaffection in the polity.

“ Arise Nigeria also concludes that organizations such as Amnesty International have indeed done more harm than good to the collective interest of Nigeria and Nigerians.

“ Arise Nigeria resolved that Nigerians should at every opportunity resists attempts by these organizations to cause disaffection in the polity by spreading half-truths.

“ The history of such organizations in other countries have seen to the disintegration of the country and Nigeria as a state must learn to avoid these organizations.”
