Summary
The military regime in Nigeria nullified democratic elections, made "extra-judicial" arrests, and exploited indigenous peoples. Human rights activists called for economic sanctions against Nigeria. From interviews with opposing leaders, we get a better understanding of the complexity of the problems during this troubling time. Nigerian Ambassador to the US Zubair Kazaure states that economic sanctions are unnecessary and misleading, while Gerald LeMelle of Amnesty International expresses his concerns about the enormous numbers of prisoners in Nigeria. Wole Soyinka, a Nigerian Nobel Prize winning writer, speaks of his political activism against the military regime, while UN Ambassador Ibrahim Gambari, argues that a developing nation cannot be held to the same standards as developed ones. Archbishop Desmond Tutu speaks of the many arrests and unfair imprisonment of Nigerians, and US Assistant Secretary of State John Shattuck talks about the US commitment to change its general approach to Nigeria. Alfred Lehn of Symms & Lehn Inc. explains why his firm conducts business in Nigeria, and Mike Fleshman of the Africa Fund details the ties between the Nigerian and US governments. Kakuna Kerina from the Committee to Protect Journalists talks of the amount of misinformation about Nigeria in US newspapers, and Gay McDougall, of the International Human Rights Law Group, speaks on the commitment to restore democracy in Nigeria
