Abuja—Worried that Nigeria was fast losing its leadership role in Africa, the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs, has said there was an urgent need for a new road map on the continent.
Chairperson of the committee, Mrs Nnenna Elendu-Ukeje, weekend, at an interactive session with the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Martin Uhomoi-bhi, said it was high time the country reviewed its foreign policy objectives as it concerns Africa.
Ukeje, in statement by the Clerk of the Committee, Alhaji Mohammed Zakari, decried the dwindling leadership role of the country in the continent.
She said: “We must have a road map in Africa to help us gain back our lost glory. We have lost ground but we can gain grounds and do better than our peers. Let us live up to the name, Giant of Africa.”
