  1. Nigeria on the Edge | Atlantic Council

    "…the Atlantic Council’s Michael S. Ansari Africa Center hosted a panel discussion, “Nigeria On The Edge”, featuring Ambassador John Campbell, Ralph Bunche Senior Fellow for Africa Policy Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, and former US Ambassador to Nigeria; Peter Lewis, Director of African Studies at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced Studies of the Johns Hopkins University; and Phillip van Niekerk, former editor, Mail & Guardian, and Managing Partner, Calabar Consulting. The panel, moderated by Ansari Center director J. Peter Pham, analyzed key developments in Nigeria over the past year as well as the current crisis; revisiting the April 2011 elections and the challenges that Goodluck Jonathan’s government has faced, as well as the recent wave of attacks by the extremist Islamist group Boko Haram that have targeted both Christians and Muslims and the widespread protests following the government’s decision to remove fuel subsidies."
