NIGERIA: Join the pro-life Geneva Consensus Declaration
The governments of Brazil, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, Uganda, and the United States co-sponsored a virtual October 22, 2020 gathering in Washington, D.C. for a multinational ceremonial signing of the Geneva Consensus Declaration (so-called because it was intended to occur in Geneva before the live meeting of the World Health Assembly was postponed due to COVID-19).
33 countries from across the globe signed the declaration, but noticeably, missing from the list was the Federal Republic of Nigeria. From Africa, Kenya, Egypt, Niger, Liberia, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Congo, Egypt, Djibouti, Eswatini, Gambia, Libya, Senegal, South Sudan, Sudan, and Zambia signed the declaration.
Nigeria has been a vocal pro-life voice at the United Nations negotiations in New York and Geneva, she also has pro-life laws, pro-life culture and pro-life people. The question that lingers on everyone's mind now is whether the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is failing at its job of representing Nigerians' interests or is getting corrupted by pro-abortion forces.
This Declaration strengthens the countries that joined it to achieve these four pillars:
(1) better health for women,
(2) the preservation of human life,
(3) strengthening of family as the foundational unit of society,
(4) protecting every nation's national sovereignty in global politics. For example, it is the sovereign right of every nation to make their own laws in regard to abortion, absent external pressure.
It is important that Nigeria joins the declaration as soon as possible. Every signature appended to this petition will send an email to the Minister of Foreign Affairs His Excellency Geoffrey Onyeama asking him to join the declaration as this is in the best interest of Nigerians.
