Nigeria - Colonialism
The first pan-African conference on reparations for the enslavement, the colonization and the African neo-colonization headed by MKO Abiola, was held in Abuja (Nigeria) from April 27 to 29 1993, it was sponsored by the Committee of Eminent Personalities and by the Reparations Commission of the Organization of African Unity.
With the prison and the mysterious death of MKO Abiola the issue of reparations has a setback, but ten years later and more precisely in 2004, the African Renaissance Party submits to the federal Parliament a bill called African Reparation Act, which provides for the establishment of the African Reparation Commission with the task of chairing the process of reparations at Nigerian level.
Until now the bill has not yet been discussed by the federal Parliament.
