Jonathan Orders Critical Review Of Foreign Policy

24 July 2011

IN a bid to rework the driving force of Nigeria’s Foreign Policy, President Goodluck Jonathan has called for a critical and comprehensive review by top Nigerian diplomats and former Foreign Affairs Ministers. The review is to be conducted this week, in Abuja

While the management of the new investment diplomacy announced last week at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) will be part of the planned exercise, sources said it would also cover the whole gamut of Nigeria’s foreign relations, including staffing, morale, standards and budget.

Under the auspices of the Presidential Advisory Council on Foreign Affairs, headed by Chief Emeka Anyaoku, Jonathan is already inviting several former/ current ministers and envoys to a comprehensive foreign policy review forum beginning tomorrow.
