After my last post on Nigeria, I’ve found two interesting blog posts over on FACT OR FICTION on the issue. One is a post on Nigeria’s human right obligations under the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
The second is an open letter to the President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo.
USI LGBT have a page on their website about Nigeria, and what they are advocating to do, including contact details for the Nigerian Embassy in Dublin.
