    To protect humanity and implement human rights, the reigning Miss Face of Humanity (MFOH) Nigeria; Amb. Rita Chika Ezenwa has charged the government and stakeholders with the practical task of securing wider acceptance of the international instruments adopted by the United Nations, the International Labour Organisation, UNESCO, and other institutions.

    The beauty queen made this charge on Friday while fielding questions from newsmen on the sidelines of the 2nd United Nations – Government of Nigeria and Partners Dialogue on Human Rights Priorities organized by the National Human Rights Commission and the United Nations Nigeria to commemorate the 2022 International Human Rights Day.

    Speaking, the Humanitarian and Entrepreneur noted that Human Rights are common to all because they belong to each and every one of us, and universal because they transcend cultural differences.

      “These rights have a collective dimension, in the sense that they may be claimed by individuals as members of a group, or when their enjoyment presupposes a social framework.

      “Therefore, at the dawn of the third millennium, the concept of human rights interactive, inseparable, and indivisible has broadened to encompass economic, social and cultural rights, civil and political rights, the right to a healthy environment, the right to human and sustainable development, and even the rights of future generations.

      “Nigeria and Africa should welcome this continuing process of expansion, which is necessary for the full realization of these rights”, Amb. Rita enthused.
