In this week's pick of some our favourite discussions over 2020-2021, we revisit the making of the nation of Nigeria. Its turbulent history has ... plenty to tell us about the current malaise. After all, as the poet Maya Angelou once said: "If you don't know where you have come from, you don't know where you are going."
Biden has also rescinded the ‘Visa ban’ that has caused so much suffering for African students and their families.
But on the big picture questions: the relationship with China, the investment in African security challenges, the way in which the US uses its economic weight to extract political concessions from African regimes, will there be any change?
In partnership with Invest Africa, we talk to four experts:
- Amaka Anku, Practice Head, Africa, Eurasia Group
- Judd Devermont, Director, Africa Program, CSIS
- W. Gyude Moore, Senior Policy Fellow, Center for Global Development
- Aubrey Hruby, Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today
We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.View subscription options
