The senate president Ike Ekweremadu noted yesterday that he had the of receiving the President of the International
, ICC, The Hague, Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji, who
me a visit today.
We shared perspectives on issues, especially as it concerns
the of the ICC.

I conveyed to him the goodwill of the of
and assured him of our support to the ICC’s to
against humanity and ensure for the victims.
As a Nigerian and African I am proud of the jurist. I believe his
is a for .

Importantly, as somebody coming from Africa, I believe that he is
in a better position to understand the issues around the mandate
of the ICC because a lot of these atrocities have been recorded in
Africa.

constitutions the world over. Genocides, war crimes, crimes
against humanity, and should have no in civilised
world.

On his part, Judge Eboe-Osuji said the purpose of his visit was to
express his gratitude to Nigeria for supporting the ICC and its

there must be accountability for of international criminal
laws. And I totally agree with him.
