The Federal Government has pledged to scale up its social investment programme to address global inequality on human trafficking and irregular migration in the country.

The Director General, National Agency for the Prohibition of Human Trafficking against Persons, Professor Fatima Waziri-Azi made the pledge at a sensitization programme as part of activities to mark this year’s world trafficking day in Abuja.

Professor Waziri-Azi said the sensitization exercise is an annual event to emphasize the need for Nigerians to desist and do not abet any form of trafficking and violence against humans.

She explained that Nigeria has a comprehensive act that specifies stipulated penalties on offenders of any form of violation against humans.

Also speaking at the occasion, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Deputy Country Representative, Danielo Campisi pledged continued support to lead the coordination of partners in the response to human trafficking in Nigeria and enhance resource efficiency, strengthen the criminal justice response, and assist the formulation of key policy documents in Nigeria.

The theme for this year’s World Day Against Human Trafficking is: “Reach every victim of trafficking-leave no one behind.” which Stakeholders at the event described as apt to meet the central promise of the 2030 Agenda which is urgently required to get the SDGs back on track.
