Nigerian Ambassadors

These new ambassadors carry out specific duties such as taking charge of the embassies, work to represent and advance the foreign policy goals of the Nigerian president and his administration in other host countries it has diplomatic relations with.

They also ensure the security of embassy staff and property, manage communications, hold bilateral talks with government officials of the host country, sign trade agreements, and protect Nigerians overseas.

Ambassadors are normally resident, this means that they live in the host country to which they are assigned. Its only in some few cases whereby a resident ambassador may be assigned to another neighbouring country.

This means he will live in the host country in which he is an ambassador but will continue to serve as a nonresident ambassador to the neighbouring country. An execption is given to the Nigerian ambassador to the United Nations who is also non-resident.

Nigeria also rely on its ambassadors abroad to build and maintain strong diplomatic and economic relationships with foreign nations that are of strategic importance to her interest.
