Abstract

General Ibrahim Babangida introduced far reaching foreign policy initiatives in Nigeria between 1985 and 1993. Some of these initiatives left an enduring legacy on Nigeria’s diplomatic history ever since. This paper therefore explores the prelude to these initiatives with the view to establish the linkage between the domestic and external factors that influenced the regime’s foreign policy initiatives during the period under review. Drawing from its findings, the paper argued that the need to reposition and revamp the battered economy in addition to the restoration of the country’s leadership position in Africa and the world formed the background to General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida’s (IBB) foreign policy initiatives.
