Nigerian NGO supports the "HOPE for Africa Act", H.R. 772!

The Committee on Vital Environmental Resources (COVER), Nigeria

We at the Committee on Vital Environmental Resources (COVER), a gender-sensitive Nigerian NGO write to state our support for the HOPE for Africa Act. Trade relations between the North and Africa has been heavily stacked against the best interests of the African people. HOPE for Africa presents a new perspective that we believe will give the children and women of Africa better chances of survival with dignity.

We can say without fear of contradiction that other NAFTA-like proposals have presented us with little more than the sort of scenarios offered by military dictators and undemocratic regimes at the local level. We support HOPE for Africa Act and reject any plan aimed at continually subjugating our people to unacceptable economic relations. We call on people of good conscience to resist all acts that lack the human face.
We place our hope in the HOPE for Africa Act!
