Human Rights Violations Compromise American Business Interests Beyond Nigeria's Borders

DALLAS - eTradeWire -- The International Committee On Nigeria (ICON) is aiding Nigerians committed and other nationalities joining forces to help the oppressed and minority groups in Nigeria. A destabilized and crisis-ridden Nigeria has negative impact for American businesses, international security, and the stability of the entire region. The geopolitical consequences of a looming unstable Nigeria are dangerous. Hence, ICON arranged this town hall meeting to review the socio-economic implications of a restive Nigeria and the complications of a negative business environment for American businessmen.

The Town Hall Meeting brings together lawmakers and businessmen who will review their roles in preventing the breakdown of law and order in the country. It will be anchored by Reverend Johnny Moore, the former Chairman of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, and will hold on Thursday, August the 19th, 2021 at Mercury One, 400 East Royal Lane, Suite 105, Irving, Texas 75039 starting at 6:00PM. Human relations experts including Dr. Richard Ikiebe from Pan-African University and Fox Nation investigative journalist, Lara Logan will join Rev. Moore in moderating the town hall meeting which will run live (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3i4E9cX3JA)

Nigeria is an important economic partner for the United States of America.  The U.S. is the largest foreign investor in Nigeria importing more than $5.5 billion U.S. originated goods every year. Nigeria has the second highest number of refugees (upwards of 19,000 individuals) pouring into Europe from the Mediterranean Sea since January 2017. Terrorism has caused more civilian deaths in Nigeria than war-torn Syria or Pakistan has experienced. The apparent impunity of perpetrators contributes to transforming the country into a failed state, a regional epicenter for terrorism and religious persecution of Christians and at-risk non-Muslim minorities.

Therefore, it is important to ensure that current tensions including the breakdown of the rule of law, spiraling violence, and atrocities against targeted religious groups and innocent civilians must stop immediately.
