Sanga, who was represented by Ms. Nneka Okafor, Head of Sector, Social and Human Sciences, UNESCO Regional Office, Abuja, said that the new dimensions to slavery required a global action.

International Day for Remembrance of Slave Trade

“The International Day for Remembrance of Slave Trade and its Abolition 2022, is yet again taking place in a challenging context due to the ongoing modern-day slavery, which is a borderless crime.

“This demands a global action, which is the theme for this very gathering.

International Day

“Even as we echo the importance of today’s theme in Nigeria, it is also pertinent to acknowledge the general theme for this year’s International Day for the Remembrance of Slave Trade and its Abolition 2022, which is Decolonisation.

Transatlantic Slave Trade

“The emphasis is on how best we can decolonize our history and ensure that the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its devastating wide-ranging and ongoing impact is never forgotten.

“UNESCO actively engages in projects that have contributed to the production of innovative knowledge, the development of high-level scientific networks and the support of memory initiatives on the theme of slavery, its abolition and the resistance it generated.

“UNESCO also supports and creates safe platforms for young people and educators to have conversations through research on new forms of slavery, linked with globalization.

“And, cultivating an anti-racism partnership to enhance intercultural dialogues, inclusion diversity and promoting integration.

“Let me end this message with a call on all stakeholders to reflect on how best to contribute, in line with their programs, to the emerging discussion on fighting exploitation, which has continuously led to modern day slavery.

“Let us stand united against human exploitation and together build societies based on dignity, equality and solidarity,” Sanga said.

Some victims of domestic servitude, who shared their ordeal, said they were fortunate to have survived in the hands of their oppressors, who were supposedly their relatives and guardians.
