DATELINE: January 17, 2019, National Press Club, Washington DC Dr McDonnell at the Emergency Conferences On Nigeria where both Mr Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy and Tony Nnadi of the LNC joined the rest of the Coalition of Save the Persecuted Christian to press for the immediate appointment of a US Special Envoy for Nigeria and the Lake Chad Region.
AN INSIGHT INTO CURRENT US POLICY ACTIONS ON NIGERIA REGARDING ETHNO-RELIGIOUS KILLINGS
On the heels of the December 11, 2018 Multi-Regional FREEDOM PARK PROCLAMATION in Lagos, a Coalition of Concerned Stakeholders in the United States, including Save Persecuted Christians, International Committee on Nigeria (ICON) and Mission Africa International organized coordinated Press Conferences on Nigeria at the National Press Club, Washington DC, January 17, 2019 with the Theme : “Nigeria At Breaking Point” where Tony Nnadi of the LNC made a Presentation.
One of the key facilitators and hosts at this SOS event on Nigeria, Frank Gaffney, who was a US Assistant Secretary For Defence and currently the President of the Washington DC-based US Center for Security Policy, took up the grave issues raised by Tony Nnadi, concerning the dangerously deteriorating security situation in Nigeria, driven by the ISIS terror machinery and the potential impact of same on US National Security, in a radio interview on January 19, 2019, syndicated for broadcast countrywide.
This incisive interview provides the clearest guide to understanding the making of the current United States Focus and Policy Actions on Nigeria, especially on Religious Freedom, especially against the backdrop of the raging ethno-religious killings and the June 2, 2020 Executive Order on Advancing International Religious Freedom.
Here is the link to the January 19, 2019 interview:
A handle has now been put on the erstwhile seemingly intractable problems of Nigeria and LNC is glad to inform you that the trigger for these massive interventions by both the US and UN, was the January 17, 2019 Presentation of the LNC at an Emergency Press Conference on Nigeria at the National Press Club in Washington DC.
The LNC is therefore at the core of how these Strategic Interventions are being advanced.
