US Blacklists Nigeria on Religious Freedom

Nigeria for the first time has been added to the US blacklist on religious freedom, clearing the path for potential sanctions if it does not improve its record.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo nominated Nigeria as a “Country of Particular Concern” for religious freedom, alongside nations that include China, Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

“Today the U.S. designates Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, Nigeria, the DPRK, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan as countries of concern under the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 for engaging systematic, ongoing, egregious religious freedom violations,” Secretary Pompeo twitted on Monday.

The U.S. is unwavering in its commitment to religious freedom. No country or entity should be allowed to persecute people with impunity because of their beliefs. These annual designations show that when religious freedom is attacked, we will act.
