Nigeria supports the discussion on both of the
crucial issues on the agenda “Moratorium
on death penalties” and “Human right
infringement in digital age. Hoping of fruitful results in means of resolution in
both the cases.
Area A: Moratorium on death penalties
Nigeria, an African country,
stands firm not legalizing the capital punishment in the country and ensures peace
at the same time as equality and justice. Although, the country has had illegalized
death sentencing and from the year 2006 till 2015 the number of execution was ‘null’ until 2016 where only three
execution were made. Which is approved
by the article 6 and 7 ensuring that it could only be sentenced when a specific
crime is committed which is inhumane.
Nigeria, therefore, believes in moratorium on death penalties
and harsh sentencing should only be
given if crimes are made on such a higher degree. Nigerian government states murder, rape and intentional death taking
or murdering as the core reason for
such harsh sentencing.
Nigerian court of justice
has more than 1472 cases of death sentences pending. But these cases, by the
official, are taken under consideration and are minimized in the order of extreme cases and in case of a huge number of eye witnesses, decreasing the
chance of innocents getting punished.
Nigeria considers death
penalties a great deal and after consulting these cases with prerogative of
mercy these inmates on death rows are
pardoned at once.
Nigeria has pre-signed
many bilateral extradition treaties with
countries like United Kingdom, USA, India and Ireland and many others, concerning
the rights of offenders with foreign nationalities than of Nigeria are to be send back their home countries for the proceeding of
Nigerian Laws on harsh sentencing
is considered as a delicate issues as
special matters are dealt by special justice systems. Juvenile Justice System,
where several exceptional cases are looked after by ignoring their criminalized
activities because of their state of mind. These
people are given proper rehabilitations and are given psychosocial counseling.
Including those who are deprived of capacity to understand and make their own
decision or are under age.
Under age offender are made to go to remand houses and schools for
straight three months to make them realize their goals.
Nigeria laid down alternatives for death penalties of life
imprisonment with a possibility to parole after 30 years in jail or the victim being given blood money to decompensate the losses of the family.
Any measure and provision
in the adopted resolution must take into account the reliability of this punishment
in being fruitful in maintaining peace and equality. Nigeria welcomes all forms
of diplomacy as long as the voices and rights of it’s’ citizens are respected and
Area B: Human right infringement in
condemns all such act human right violation of human rights due to invasion of
privacy led my individuals in the society. It is refereed as a malicious act
trying to hurt personal integrity of different human beings. It could be done
as an act of false light, targeting a person and making false accusation and it
may also refer to acts of invasion in personal space and getting unauthorized
access to somebody’s personal information.
Nigeria believes internet surveillance is necessary to regulate laws of data
protection.NCC regulation ensure the safety of personalized information by issuing
license of keeping customers’ information. NITDA is a agency made responsible
of making the guideline of the plans to ensure safe way to keep information and
how to deal with piracy. It makes its guideline clear and spreads public
awareness in this regard.
After an act
exposing the immoral activity of the former president which is considered as
unethical journalism in Nigeria, These regulations are strictly implemented and
proper acts are proposed with ethics of journalism discussed in detail. Making regulation linked with privacy invasion
believed that a line should be drawn
between private and public space of individual living in Nigeria. To prevent
these issues, international community must stand together and should play its
role in making an international mandate
related to it .Which would ensure the protection of human rights and basic
freedom for citizen. The free flow of personal information from country o
country are carried out which should be exempted at once. A territory based
system should be brought that could monitor problems restricted to an area.
It is to be
assumed that government should be
managing the control over internet layout and structure and the data transferred
and stored by organizations. It is only possible by introducing an internet governance mechanism that deals which such infringement
issues. National security should be a
part of digital security too and should be deal by many organizations in a
country at once. Such that, it could look after malpractice, getting
unauthorized access to networks and illegalized decryptions. These should be
led by people from government and on government sectors as it’s a job of both
to secure nations’ safety sovereignty.
Century is considered as ‘digital age’
thus ensuring peace and security can only be done fully when digital
infringement cases are resolved. Thus it’s considered as “the central pillar of security of 21st century”.
best resolution would be made and best of the frameworks must be choosen as for
the security against personalized piracy.
