FG must address rights violations to curb ‘Japa’ – IHRC The Federal Government should address the issue of human rights violations and abuses against the citizens to curb the spate of brain drain in the country popularly known as ‘Japa’, the International Human Rights Commission, advised on Saturday. The organization also called on political leaders to prioritise the issues of infrastructure provision, internet penetration and promotion of Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises for sustainable development of the nation, saying it is not a matter of privilege, but the people’s right. The IHRC’s Head of Diplomatic Mission in Nigeria, Dr Duru Hezekiah, said these during a symposium organized in Abuja by the commission to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations. According to him, the absence of adequate infrastructure and other development indices predispose citizens to circumstances in which their rights are abused at home and in Diaspora.
