The world is in transition, sub-national and national governments, sub-regional and regional organizations continue to position and re-position to maximize the changes and dynamics of events that shape global affairs. Attempts have been made to articulate these phenomena in ways that they can be identify, so that the measures at either curbing or achieving them can be evolved both in isolation and partnership at the national, regional and global levels respectively. These underscore the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) escalated to the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) and the insights from the World Economic Forum (WEF) with regard to the revolution in information communications technologies.
The issues articulated in these development initiatives have impacted and will continue to impact the African states and the people differently. To navigate through these, African leaders, scholars, policy makers and administrators continue to engage and interrogate these within the context of their immediate environment to find solutions, mindful of the implications for continental and global development. The African Renaissance since inception has proven to be a veritable platform for the promotion of the Renaissance of Africa and Africa Rising, through the publication of research from these groups. The Journal recognizes the complexity of the African states and its challenges, thus, accommodates articles on African Affairs across disciplines that are of high quality and have gone through its peer-review process.
The contributions in this Issue are topical issues that the authors have examined and offered suggestions. These include subjects on: inter-state relations and diplomacy, actors and their roles in planning and implementations, requisite skills in teaching and learning, self-governance rule and secessionist agitations, election administration, parliament and legislations, inter-governmental relations, natural disaster, containing COVID-19 pandemic, etc.
For the team work that has sustained the publication of this Journal, we acknowledge the concerted efforts of our anonymous reviewers, the contributors and the publishers, Adonis & Abbey for their respective painstaking roles in the entire process.
