Foreign Policy – religion.

In: Sahab Press.  1996.P.228.

Abstract: The book gives a detailed definition of foreign policy, particularly, Nigeria’s foreign policy towards Israel. The author discusses the factors that have influenced the foreign policy of Nigeria since independence, reviews Nigerian- Israel relationship from 1960 to 1970, examines the economic activities of Israeli in Nigeria, the debate on whether Nigeria should resume diplomatic relations with Israel, and analyses the attitude of politicians to-wards Nigerian – Israeli relations during the second republic (1978-1983) and the transition period of 1990-1993. The book’s flavor can best be conveyed in Chapters 7 and 9, where the author discusses the controversy surrounding Nigeria’s membership of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and Nigeria’s restoration of formal diplomatic ties with Israel under the Babangida administration. Each chapter analyses the role and attitude of the main actors in these controversies, G of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and Nigeria’s restoration of formal diplomatic ties with Israel under the Babangida administration. Each chapter analyses the role and attitude of the main actors in these controversies, General Babangida and his government, the Muslim and Christian Communities. The two chapters show how practically, religion, and not economic and political reasoning, influences public attitude towards major government foreign policy decisions in Nigeria.
