The Conduct of Nigeria’s Foreign Policy and Global Terrorism: An Assessment

Chime Jide Mathew


In this study we interrogated whether the conduct of Nigeria’s foreign policy has played any significant role in addressing the issue of global terrorism since after the terrorist strike on US in 2001. We focused on the action of elected and appointed government officials, their self interest and the nature of their relations with various client groups. We argued that political actors who make choice in the world of scare resources are influenced by each other, foreign officials, unions, and others who have direct or indirect stake in public policies. The global market is made up of those who damage certain type of public policies and those who supply them. These actors are self-interested. We concluded that, the conduct of Nigeria’s foreign policy has not fully grown above ethnic and parochial vagaries in deciding issues of global importance, hence their peacekeeping efforts in Africa is both saddening and embarrassing as economic managers prioritize their selfish interest first before the public interest.
