Meeting with the President of the International Criminal Court, By Ike Ekweremadu
I had the honour of receiving the President of the International Criminal Court, ICC, The Hague, Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji, who paid me a visit today.
We shared perspectives on global issues, especially as it concerns the mandate of the ICC.
I conveyed to him the goodwill of the National Assembly of Nigeria and assured him of our support to the ICC's efforts to check crimes against humanity and ensure justice for the victims.
As a Nigerian and African I am proud of the jurist. I believe his emergence is a collective honour for Africa.
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.
For us as a civilised people, we believe that human life is very precious. That is why the right to life is the first right in the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria and I think that is the same with modern constitutions the world over. Genocides, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and aggression should have no place 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 mandate.
He also said that the idea of the rule of law must continue; that there must be accountability for violations of international criminal laws. And I totally agree with him."
Ekweremmadu, Okorocha and other Igbo politicians have been contracted by Buhari government to lobby ICC head who is a fellow Igbo man.
The Leaker said that Ekweremmadu refused the devil's job for the first time and later accepted it when he was told that he will go to jail because of the properties he has in UK. Now you understand why it was only Ekweremmadu's property in London that was seen as a problem by UK and Nigeria.
The reliable source said that UK government suggested this as means to get ICC to deny the People of Biafra Justice.
UK used the properties that Ekweremmadu has in their country as a blackmail for Ekweremmadu to accept the job of injustice.
Okorocha who accepted the job in the first time as the ICC head is from his state, was told to lobby those who are close to ICC at home as his voice can only be seen as speaking for his State.
While Ekweremmadu who is the Deputy Senate President of Nigeria will be seen as speaking for the country.
ICC Should Never Allow Nigerian Politicians To Introduce Corruption In ICC. The same way ICC held Omar al-Bashir responsible for his genocide in Sudan is the same way Buhari and his associates should be held responsible for the genocide against Biafrans.
