Body applauds FG for country’s rise in 2019 trafficking report
All Africa Media Network (AAMN) has applauded the present administration’s achievements in the campaign against human trafficking that has resulted in the nation’s rise from Tier 2 watch list to Tier 2 in the 2019 Trafficking in Persons Report, an annual report which ranks governments based on their perceived efforts to acknowledge and combat human trafficking by US Department of State.
According to the Program Coordinator of AAMN, Cookey Iwuoha, every country in the world is affected by human trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit, or destination for victims and Nigeria’s climb from the Tier 2 watch list to Tier 2 after spending the past two years on the lower category is not a fluke but rather a result of fervent effort of its government and security agencies.
He said that according to the global report on trafficking in persons released by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), women and girls comprise 71% of human trafficking victims.
