AFRICA AND UN REFORMS: AN ASSESSMENT OF NIGERIA’S QUEST FOR THE SECURITY COUNCIL PERMANENT SEAT

ABSTRACT

The African Continent and indeed the developing world have been marginalized from global politics and relations in the affairs of the United Nations since its inception in 1945 over sixty seven (67) years ago. This study x-rays and appraises critically the prevailing existing order between Africa and UN; the negative impact of this asyca and more importantly, Nigeria’s quest for the Security Council Perma ent Seat is seriously interrogated with a view to bring about fundamental change. To this end, the study in anchored on this research question: Will Nigeria’s role in both regional and global peacekeeping efforts help ensure her a seat in the Security Council? The study employed the Marxian Political Economy Theory as its framework of analysis, and thereby advocating for the reformation and re-creation of the United Nations especially the Security Council to accommodate the African course and interests. Also, the study made a special case for Nigeria, a prime African state to be
given the chance of occupying the Permanent Seat of the Security Council in its reform agenda. Finally, based on the research findings that Africa has fared abysmally in the standing global order, the study state that economic and socio political development should be pursued with more vigor by the United Nations for the benefit of global citizenry and for an assertive role in the global system and Africa should absorb “NeoPan Africanism” ideology in the tide of the current UN reform programme.
