NHRC DISTANCES FROM COALITION WITH ACRONYM 'NHRC'

Posted: 2019-02-08


The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has disassociated itself from the activities of a group known as 'Nigerian Human Rights Community' with the acronym NHRC.

A release from the Commission over the weekend noted that it has been inundated by inquiries from members of the public after a group addressed a press conference in Lagos during the week backing one of the political parties.

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) is a national institution for the promotion, protection and enforcement of human rights and has no political affiliation.

The use of the acronym NHRC is misleading and the Commission will take necessary legal measures to address the anomaly.

We urge Nigerians to ignore the mischievous attempt to mislead anyone into believing that the acronym used in this instance refers to National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).
