Amnesty International Knocks Tinubu Administration’s Human Rights Records


Amnesty International (AI), has taken a swipe at President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration’s observance of human rights and rule of law records in the past one year, saying that it fell abysmally below expectations.

The human rights organisation said that its findings have raised significant concerns about the Nigerian government’s commitment to protecting its citizens and ensuring justice and accountability for human rights abuses.

It particularly noted what it described as the severe human rights violations being committed with impunity across the country in the past one year under President Tinubu’s watch.

The organization specifically said that the abuses were not isolated incidents but, part of a broader pattern of systemic human rights failures under President Tinubu’s administration.

Amnesty International which stated these while giving a scathing assessment of Nigeria under President Tinubu, pointedly accused his administration of failing to uphold human rights and the rule of law after one year in office.

These were contained on its verified social media accounts, entitled “Human Rights Through Tinubu’s One Year in Office,” in which Amnesty International stressed that the persistent and alarming issue of frequent attacks and abductions by armed groups, known locally as bandits were worrisome.

The human rights organisation further said; “These incidents have been particularly rampant in the states of Plateau, Niger, Katsina, Zamfara, and several areas within Sokoto state, creating an atmosphere of fear and instability among rural communities and travellers.”

Amnesty International said that its report should serve as a call to action for the Tinubu administration to address these critical issues and to take concrete steps towards safeguarding human rights and upholding the rule of law in Nigeria.
