“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”
We want a Nigerian and African society where justice belongs to all.
Human rights fort is a non-government organization focused on eradicating human rights abuses in Africa’s most populous nation – Nigeria. Social justice, the right to freedom, and proper human rights education are our driving force.
