​The Nigerian Constitution provides for the protection of religious freedom, which we discuss regularly with the Nigerian Government at the highest levels. We continue to work with the Nigerian Government, non-governmental organisations and civil society to improve both the security situation and protection of human rights for all in Nigeria.
