Nigeria’s President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, may not be welcome at next month’s meeting of world leaders under the aegis of the Group of Eight most industrialised nations – G8 for short.
News Express can report that at a meeting this morning at the Abuja residence of United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Terence P. McCulley, the cream of Nigeria’s human rights community made a case for President Jonathan to be prevented from attending the G8 Leaders’ Summit taking place June 17-18 in Lough Erne Summit at which the UK assumes the one-year Presidency of the G8.
“Civil society leaders who attended the meeting asked the G8 through the US to deny President Jonathan invitation to the meeting,” an impeccable source told News Express.
The source said that Ambassador McCulley promised to convey the message to relevant officials back home. The Barack Obama administration is angry with Jonathan’s and, as exclusively reported this morning by News Express, has decided to stop military aide to Africa’s most populous country over alleged corruption and human rights abuses.
The meeting, which held behind closed doors in the Nigerian capital, was at the instance of the ambassador. It discussed “issues of extra-legal killings by security agents and state of of insecurity in the country” as well as “the unprecedented corruption in Nigerian government circles,”according to one source.
Representatives of about 10 prominent human rights group attended the breakfast meeting include Dr. Jibrin Ibrahim of Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD); Kole Shettima of MacArthur Foundation; Emmanuel Onwubiko of Human Rights Writers’ Association of Nigeria (HURIWA); and Clement Nwankwo of Policy and Legal Advocacy Centre (PLAC).
