The Fundamental Human Rights

Pin It
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, the fundamental human rights to be universally protected.
The Fundamental Human Rights are generally regarded as a set of legal protections in the context of a legal system wherein such system is in itself based upon this same set of basic fundamentals or in inalienable rights. Such rights thus belong without presumption or cost of privilege to all human being under such jurisdiction. It is then pertinent to know that fundamental human rights are the brainchild of the rule of law. That is, the formation upon which the rule of law sprang up.

The rule of law as the name suggests implies that no single individual is above the law. Consequently, Fundamental Human Right as enshrined in the constitution depicts that every right of an individual emanating from his natural existence has to and or must be respected and not to be violated as such violation is tantamount to a violation of section iv of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria on universal declaration of Human Rights and Africa Charter on Human and Peoples right.
