ABSTRACT

One of the major benefits of being a world power is the ability to act independently of other nations or institutions especially when matters of national interest are concerned. The US engaged Iraq in a rather pre-emptive war in what, many scholars have argued, centred on oil. Be that as it may, such a unilateral action has implications for emergent powers like Nigeria. To this end, this study set for itself the task of evaluating the implications of the 2003 US – Iraq war on Nigerian foreign policy, as contained in the objectives which are, to ascertain whether the 2003 US-Iraq war has led to reduction in Nigeria’s oil supply to the United States and to examine the Iraq war and security challenges in Nigeria. To generate
relevant data for this study, we relied on observation technique. The relevance of observation method to this study is obvious since it yield data that pertain directly to typical behavioural situations. In other hand, given the nature of this study, especially the type of data required to interrogate our hypothesis; we utilized secondary sources of data. The theoretical framework used in this study is Integration theory. This theory however, will practically equip us with the analytical lens to view globalization as a process engineered by the industrialized West to further incorporate developing countries into the global capitalist system. Using this theory as the framework of analysis, the study found that the invasion of Iraq by the United States has implications for Nigerian foreign policy, especially as it relates to oil.
