FG ONDENMS US CALLS FOR THE REDESIGNATION OF NIGERIA

Written by on July 5, 2022

Federal Government, on Monday, condemned the call by five United States Republican Senators asking for the re-designation of Nigeria as a country of particular concern because of alleged persecution of Christians.

The senators, who made the call in a letter to the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, also alleged violation of freedom of Christians’ rights to practice their religion in Nigeria.

Responding to the allegation in an interview with Newsmen in London, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the call was based on false premise and misunderstanding of what was going on in the country.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed is in London for engagements with international media as well as some relevant Non-Governmental Organisations.
