The editor of this volume has compiled transcriptions of the Nigerian President's key speeches delivered between May 2000 and May 2001. There are some sixty speeches from a variety of political and state occasions, international summits and conferences, official openings and inaugurations. Reflecting Nigeria's prominence and diverse involvement in sub-regional, pan-African, and global affairs, the speeches, at home and abroad, encompass wide-ranging social, economic, diplomatic, foreign and health policy issues. Examples include: the address at the G15 Summit in Cairo; OAU summit addresses; commentaries on the impacts of globalisation/liberalisation in Nigeria; diplomatic meetings with Russia and the Far East; Budget addresses; meeting Thabo Mbeki, relations with South Africa and Nigeria's role in promoting peace, democracy and prosperity on the continent; and a speech from a pan-African conference on human trafficking and NGO activism.
