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.
