“It would be inappropriate for the 2014 Commonwealth Games to be held anywhere in Nigeria, given the country’s serious human rights abuses, intercommunal violence, widespread corruption and flawed elections.”
As Mr Eugenides notes
“Tatchell is correct. If the Commonwealth Games Federation has any ethical standards at all, it will award them to Glasgow instead, which has no problems with intercommunal violence, widespread corruption or flawed elections.”
Tatchell also says,
“Awarding Abjua the games would reward bad governance, [and] grave social injustices”
Far be it from me to comment on this in a country where the average life expectancy of a male in some parts of Glasgow is 54, and a short train trip away in East Dunbartonshire average male life expectancy is 78.
