UNCLAS ABUJA 001140 SIPDIS E.O. 12958: N/A TAGS: PHUM, KWMN, KCRM, NI, VT SUBJECT: NIGERIA PARTICIPATION AT VATICAN TIP CONFERENCE REF: A. A) VATICAN 1483 B) VATICAN 700 B. C) ABUJA 697 D) 03APR02 FROWICK-TAYLOR E-MAIL 1. Embassy Abuja appreciates the inclusion of Nigerian representation at the May 15-16 conference on Trafficking in Persons (TIP), co-sponsored by the Vatican Secretariat and Embassy Vatican. President Obasanjo's Special Assistant on Human Trafficking and Child Labor, Mr. Mike Mku, would be the most appropriate GON representative. After receipt of Ref C, RNLEO contacted Mku to inform him informally of the conference and his invitation to attend. Mku indicates that he would be willing to attend and deliver a presentation. A formal invitiation can be delivered to Mku through the Holy See Embassy in Abuja or, if Embassy Vatican prefers, a letter from Ambassador Jeter. The GON will most likely fund Mku's travel expenses for this conference. 2. For prospective Nigerian NGO participants, we would suggest Mrs. Bisi Olateru-Olagberi of the Women's Consortium of Nigeria (WOCON) and/or Dr. Nana Aisha Abdulquadri of the Women Trafficking and Child Labor Elimination Foundation (WOTCLEF). Invitations to these prospective participants could also be issued through Post. Jeter
