The National Summit on Impunity in Nigeria is scheduled to take place in Abuja on June 24 and 25, 2014.
The Summit will be declared open by Honourable Justice Muhammadu Lawal Uwais, former Chief Justice of Nigeria.
The Stop Impunity Nigeria (S.I.N) Project is a collaborative campaign by a multi-stakeholder group of civil society organizations, religious bodies and a Federal Government agency which was launched in mid-2013 by the four implementing civil society organisations and their partners with an overarching objective to awaken public awareness to the corrosive effects of impunity on the prospects for development in Nigeria.
The Summit seeks to bring together stakeholders including civil society groups; community-based organizations, faith-based organizations and grassroots organizations; government agencies, etc., to deliberate on the problem of impunity, identify what has been done so far, ongoing efforts and initiatives and what remains to be done, which can then inform a comprehensive strategy for carrying on the campaign in a coordinated and focused manner, with all the actors reinforcing each other’s activities and efforts.
The Summit is expected to draw greater attention to the fight against impunity in Nigeria and galvanize actions around issues of impunity. It will end with a broad strategy document incorporating the roles and approaches of various stakeholders in the campaign against impunity.
