Abstract:The New World Order is no longer characterized by the East/West divide, nor by the ideological dynamics of the Cold War. The emerging new world order is marked by liberal democracies versus authoritarian regimes; liberal democracies/authoritarian regimes as State entities versus terrorism, a non-State entity; religious fanaticism versus secularism; and the rich nations (the North) versus the poor nations (the South). The relations between the US and Nigeria can best be described as a tale of two giants representing the North/South hegemonies. This paper looks at Nigeria's leading role in Africa; its attitude concerning the US campaign against terrorism, including the war with Iraq; the Africa policy of the US; and US-Nigeria relations.
