Already there has been a full list of 93 Ambassadorial Nominees on the table of the president. Of which from the look of the list Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to consider fairness and equal representation in the appointment of ambassadorial nominees.
According to Said Adejumobi of Guardian, if there is any area that successive governments in Nigeria have done very well, it is in the area of foreign policy. The thrust of Nigeria foreign policy is quite clear. A concentric circle defines Nigeria’s engagement with the outside world-West Africa first, Africa second and the global arena as the third sphere of Nigeria’s foreign policy priority.
Charity for Nigeria begins at home or in the neighbourhood. The Biafran experience taught the country a hard lesson that if your immediate neighbours are not happy with you, or you do not command their trust and respect, your search for regional or global power will be hollow and a wild goose chase.
President Buhari, through Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama and SSA on Foreign Affairs Abike Dabiri, hopes to consolidate on the foreign policy gains of prior administrations.
