Politics Nigeria won't Withdraw from ICC- Jonathan- National Mirror

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday assured the President of the International Criminal Court, ICC, Mr. Sang-Hyun Song, that Nigeria was not considering withdrawing from the jurisdiction of the court.

Speaking at an audience with the ICC president at the State House, Jonathan, however, said while Nigeria still maintained its endorsement and commitment to the guiding principles and objectives of the court, the country wanted urgent action to address the current concerns of African leaders over its operations.

The President told Song that Nigeria and the African Union, AU, would work with the United Nations, UN, and the Assembly of ICC State Parties to achieve a review of sections of the ICC’s Rome Statutes, including those that deny the deferment of cases against sitting heads of state and government with definite tenures.
