  • Does Nigeria’s leadership have a clear and broadly shared understanding of how the international society may be different in ten, twenty, fifty years in the future? Are its “headlights” shining Farther out than those of other competitors? Is our leadership’s point of view about the future clearly reflected in the country’s short term priorities? Is its point of view about the future competitively unique?Alaba Ogunsanwo
  • Nigeria’s standing in the world since independence has had its high and low points.. To stem the tide of eroding professionalism and decline, to take advantage of the prospects and opportunities presented by a changing domestic and external environment, the Nigerian Foreign policy establishment must seek to confront and address the litany of known challenges in the Foreign Ministry. Ummuna H. Orjiako
  • The roles to be played by the India in the foreseeable future are likely to be less proactive but more engaging in its watchdog, check and balancing functions. In spite of Government’s war effort on corruption, it is still deepening. Politics is still largely characterized by violence and insecurity. The economy is still having growth without development. In fact, democracy and national unity is still constantly threatened. These factors are very likely to continue to compel the media to monitor governance and act as counter balance as required in Section 22 of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria. Bola A. Akinterinwa
