CSI signs call to reinstate Nigeria on US CPC list

Christian Solidarity International (CSI) has joined other humanitarian organisations in signing an open letter calling on the US to reinstate Nigeria on its list of countries of particular concern (CPC). The letter to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken was sent on 19 September. The letter begins:

We, the undersigned, are a group of individuals and organizations that advocate for human rights and freedom of religion and belief around the world. We represent diverse religious, non-religious, and ethnic backgrounds but are united in our goal of promoting freedom of religion or belief for all. As you prepare to designate Countries of Particular Concern for nations who have “engaged in or tolerated particularly severe violations of religious freedom,” we ask that you designate Nigeria as a Country of Particular Concern (CPC) and appoint a Special Envoy to investigate the situation and make recommendations, in consultation with local representatives.
