In this episode of Head to Head, Mehdi Hasan challenges Obiageli Ezekwesili, the former World Bank vice president for Africa, Nigerian minister of education, and co-founder of Transparency International, on Nigeria’s rise as a regional and global power.
Is Nigeria the next superpower? Has enough been done to fight corruption? Could Boko Haram break up Nigeria? And have World Bank policies helped or hurt Africa?
In front of the Oxford Union audience and with the help of an expert panel, we explore Nigeria’s role in the region and wider world and the challenges it faces.
Nigeria’s Future: Failed state or African superpower? with Obiageli Ezekwesili will be broadcast on May 1, 2015 at 2000GMT and will be repeated on April 2 at 1200GMT; April 3 at 0100GMT; and April 4 at 0600 GMT.
