ANN Foreign Policy Priorities


ANN believes that Nigeria’s Foreign Policy should reflect our history, diverse culture and the creativity, hard-work, determination and enterprise of Nigeria at home and in DiasporaANN government will aggressively pursue a coherent and ambitious set of Domestic Policies, that would strengthen our union, to support and shape our Foreign Policy priorities.

An ANN government will be dynamic and pragmatic with the world and will focus on:

  • Re-positioning our Embassies and High Commissions, to protect the rights of Nigerians abroad; and promote Nigeria’s cultural and economic interests.
  • Work towards integrating markets (free and fair) in West Africa and in the whole of Africa, through Pan-African institutions, such as Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS). Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and the African Union (AU), in ways that benefit the Nigerian worker and businesses.
  • Explore opportunities to play greater roles within The Commonwealth.
  • Address the challenges of migration from its roots – linking better governance at home with the case for fairer global monetary and economic systems; and accelerate the conversion of “brain drain” to “brain gain”.
  • Support and promote the Nigerian Entertainment Industry, in Africa and around the world, to leverage soft power.
  • Strengthen the “Nigeria Technical Aid Corps”, as one of Nigeria’s major Foreign Policy Tools in Africa, integrated into social and economic goals at home, to justify investment.
  • Work with like-minded countries, to make the compelling case for reforming International institutions: global monetary, financial and economic systems, and trade to be more inclusive and fair, as part of addressing global justice issues. This would enable Nigeria, to be part of the rules-makers and not just rules-takers. This would also enable Nigeria, greater access to global markets, as we embark on a plan to lift millions of Nigerians out of poverty.
  • Working with partners, to reform the United Nations and to continue to make the compelling case for Nigeria, as it earns its way into Permanent Membership of the UN Security Council.
