US Adds Nigeria to Blacklist on Religious Freedom 

on

The United States government on Monday December 7, added Nigeria to a religious freedom blacklist. 

Addition of Nigeria to the list for the first time, paves way for potential sanctions if there is no improvement on the record. 

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States designated Nigeria which is a US ally as a “Country of Particular Concern” under the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 for religious freedom, for engaging ”systematic, ongoing, egregious violations of religious freedom.”

Pompeo tweeted; 

Today the U.S. designates Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, Nigeria, the DPRK, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan as countries of concern under the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 for engaging systematic, ongoing, egregious religious freedom violations.

The U.S. is unwavering in its commitment to religious freedom. No country or entity should be allowed to persecute people with impunity because of their beliefs. These annual designations show that when religious freedom is attacked, we will act.
