Following the discussion on the UN HRE programme really gives great joy knowing that even when our governments and people in authority fail to act in promoting HRE especially in the primary schools, the comments and initiatives of members of the list serv gives the deepest conviction that there is a ligh at the end of the tunnel. For me, accelerating the promotion and understanding of HRE in the primary school is a priority because at that stage is where you have the individuals who would lead the future and the proper understanding of the concept of human rights will help mold a future of the respect and protection of human rights. In Nigeria, the government has commenced series of reform but am yet to see the reform on specific intervention in promoting HRE in schools. I will welcome initiatives on how to accelerate the promotion of the HRE and how we can promote strategic cooperation between the government and civil society in the promotion of HRE in primary and secondary school.
