The European Union (EU) has pledged to support Nigeria in recovering its stolen assets abroad and addressing issues such as corruption, illicit financial flows, and credible elections.
This was announced by the head of the EU delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Miss Samuela Isopi, at the end of the 6th round of the Nigeria-EU Human Rights Dialogue.
The European Union (EU) has been a vital partner in Nigeria’s efforts to combat corruption and illicit financial flows, as well as ensure credible elections. The EU has pledged its support for Nigeria’s recovery of stolen assets abroad as well as other issues such as human rights protection, safe migration, and humanitarian situations.
Miss Samuela Isopi said that at the end of the dialogue, Nigeria and the EU countries’ representatives came up with resolutions on human rights, safe migration, humanitarian situations, and mutual concerns.
She said that the EU was very interested in strengthening cooperation and engagement with Nigeria on regional and international forums.
“We discussed democratic governance in view of the upcoming general elections.”
“On the issue of asset recovery, which is very important, and from our side, we reassured Nigerian partners of our engagement to see how we can better work together, and we identified some of the pathways that we could explore for these to be done.”
The EU and Nigeria have also agreed on resolutions regarding human rights, safe migration, humanitarian situations, and other mutual concerns. The EU is committed to supporting Nigeria’s efforts to tackle corruption and the Nigerian government’s commitment to improving the electoral process and protecting human rights. The EU will work with Nigeria to improve cooperation and engagement in regional and international forums.
RateCaptain analyst believes that these recent developments will strengthen ties between Europe and Africa even further through their joint efforts against illegal activities that cause harm not only domestically but across countries too due to their transnational nature; ultimately leading to better conditions for all involved citizens in terms of safety, security, economic opportunities, etcetera. It is clear that together they can make real progress when it comes to fighting poverty, inequality, crime, or any other issue plaguing our global society today; this new agreement is just one step forward, along with many others still needed ahead.
