Global Centre for Defence of Human Rights (GCDHR) Lagos proudly felicitates with the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Olumide Akpata, on behalf of all Nigerian lawyers, and especially, NBA Lagos Branch, Human Rights Committee, on the hosting of a Human Rights Summit, to commemorate the 72nd celebration of the International Human Rights Day by the International Human Rights Community all over the world, today the 10th December, 2020.

Human rights day is observed globally every year on 10 December which date in 1948, the United Nation General Assembly had unanimously adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, for the benefit of mankind, with these immortal opening statement ” Disrespect and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind”. The theme of this year’s celebration; Recover better: Stand up for Human rights could not have been more apt. Lawyers play pivotal role in the defence and enforcement of human rights of citizens, in keeping with their primary duty, as priests in the temple of justice. The real value of human rights lies in their enforcement through the instrumentality of the law courts. Every lawyer called to the bar, is first and foremost, a human rights activist, by virtue of his calling. The quantum leap in volume of human litigations in Nigerian courts attest to the reality of role of the Nigerian Lawyer in the evolution and growth of human rights. As an organization actively involved in the promotion, defence and enforcement of human rights and social justice under the mantra of Activism of positive Change, we are not oblivious of the challenges faced by both lawyers and Judges in accessing relevant cases of interest in the course of their professional duties. In appreciation of the great contributions of the bar and bench in the protection and enforcement of fundamental rights, as well as, in commemoration of this special day, GCDHR have decided to offer a 10% discount on the following books; Rights of Suspects and Accused Persons under Nigerian Criminal Law, Human Rights Litigation in Nigeria, With Practice Forms & Precedents and Casebook Human Rights Litigation. This special discount offer lapses 48 hours after today, 10th December, 2020. Contact us directly on 08033254471 and 09077950432, for your orders, while it lasts.)
