The approval of the National Action Plan on Human Trafficking is a major breakthrough in the efforts of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and its supervising Ministry, the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development in curtailing incidences of human trafficking in the Country and also a commendable determination by Government in addressing the global phenomenon.

The NAPTIP boss who expressed mixed feeling over the 2020 United States Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report which elevated Nigeria from the previous Tier 2 Watch list to Tier 2 ranking, said the Agency is presently studying the report with a view to identifying areas of improvement and scale up the activities of the agency.
