Concluding Observations

Adopted at 40th Ordinary Session, 15 - 29 November 2006, Banjul, Gambia.

    During the period of military régimes, until 1999, Nigeria faced problems in fulfilling its obligations in the field of human rights. Since the return to a democratic regime and the rule of law in 1999, the government has taken several measures in the field of legislation, institution building, planning and implementation to enhance the promotion and protection of human rights.

    After general introductory parts, the report contains sections on human dignity, access to justice, the right to property, the police, penitentiary reform, elimination of discrimination against women and children, health, equality before the law, work and employment, economic and social rights and education.
