Tuggar said Nigeria’s future was dependent on the success of the 4D model he introduced in Abuja on Monday


Foreign Affairs Minister, Yusuf Tuggar, on Monday, officially inaugurated a 4D foreign policy doctrine for Nigeria.

the doctrine is anchored on Democracy, Development, Demography, and Diaspora, saying the nation’s development depends on it.


Bound By Common History

Tuggar said in Abuja during the inauguration and exhibition that the ceremony presented a unique ambience crystallising the cultural heritage, values, and aspirations of the people of Nigeria, the most populous black nation in the world.

“We are a people bound by common history and diverse cultures yet united for development, peace, progress, and prosperity.


“Nigeria and indeed, Africa’s development depends increasingly on a new line of vision, which has been well articulated in President Bola Tinubu’s new foreign policy concept.

“In the same way, this exhibition has been carefully set up to, among other things, showcase Nigeria’s history and diplomatic engagements.”

According to the minister, democracy is a universally accepted form of governance that guarantees freedom, human rights, and the rule of law.


He said the ambit of democracy comes with the burden of ensuring its viability and functionality to embrace divergent interests and ensure that democratic institutions are strengthened to serve the collective interests of the people.

“The President’s keen interest is in strengthening democracy and underscoring the opportunities that come with it, as well as the challenges that confront it,” the minister added.


Tuggar emphasised the need for the removal of major impediments to the development of democracy in Nigerian particular, and the Africa in general.

He said the continuous cycle of dependence did not favour the socio-economic growth and development of Nigeria.
