Human Rights: An Overview Perspectives and Conditions That Create Problems of Human Rights and Why It Is Often Ignored by Authorities

Kenneth Ubani


Despite the declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations (UNO) which was to involve all human race as much as it is universal and logical, to ensuring Freedom, Peace, Security and right to live anywhere you are or make a living, the abuses of human rights tends to have escalated progressively, especially in African societies. In this study many factors have been considered prevalent notwithstanding the programmes, campaigns, education and the wealth of resources that have been put in place for human rights to be observed in all nations. It has been observed that colonization in the African continent is still ongoing. Progress has been slow in achieving complete democratic process. Examples have been taken from life experiences: practical witnesses and documented evidences, reports, publications on abuses. Culture, ethnicity, subjective poverty, colonial “mind set or mentality”, hypocrisy, politics, lack of education, educated illiterates and lack of adequate Human Rights campaign have been seen as factors. Human Right Education is not yet a subject under Universal Basic Education (UBE) curriculum in a majority of African societies school systems. It is only done indirectly in social and cultural studies, civic education rights and responsibilities. The children need education on this with a laboratory practice so that they grow with it – respecting the rights of the other person. Until this is done Human Rights protection, practice or observation will continue to elude many societies, especially peoples of modern Africa.
