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.
