Odein Ajumogobia

Foreign Affairs Minister, Nigeria

As Foreign Minister, Odein Ajumogobia leads an outspoken diplomatic corps. Nigeria urged Laurent Gbagbo to quit after losing Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election. As the crisis dragged on, Ajumogobia condemned the West for rapidly imposing a no-fly zone in Libya while failing to protect people in Côte d’Ivoire. The well-regarded Foreign Minister holds the post at a time when Nigeria exercises notable influence on regional and global politics. The country is in the midst of its 2010-11 tenure on the United Nations Security Council, and on 24 March, it began a third term as chair of the Economic Community of West African States.
