Hope for BIAFRA Restoration As UN Special Rapporteur Urges Implementation Of The Rights Of Indigenous Peoples Assured By UN Declaration


Biafra: THE Special Rapporteur on the rights of the Indigenous Peoples, Victoria Tauli-Corpoz, has urged countries not to be afraid to strengthen the rights of the Indigenous peoples as guaranteed by a UN Declaration adopted a decade ago.

She said the Declaration, adopted in 2007, is a compilation of “tears and complaints” brought by the indigenous peoples to the attention of world leaders.
According to her, there are more than 370 million indigenous peoples around the world, according to the UN, who make up 15 per cent of those living in poverty. This, however, calls to mind the plight of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Nigeria as a case in point.
She reportedly shared a message Ms Corpuz shared her message with Jocelyne Sambira ahead of a briefing to the press on Thursday, but also touched on the need for indigenous peoples to assert their own rights.
