In contemporary Africa, the quest for nation building has largely deviated from the plan and policies of visionary African leaders at the independent. These African visionaries, have advocated and established policies of national value that would largely contribute to patriotism and national pride in Africa. They have, through, a wide range of processes and policies achieve national integration, which in turn, have immensely enhanced political and economic development for the general citizenry. However, this spirit of national integration and nation building that was originally built on Pan-Africanism has been soiled with unprecedented level of socio-politico indifference, poverty, corruption, and insecurity, inequalities, discrimination, and leadership deficit, poor investment in education, infrastructure, and health, among others, in contemporary Africa.

Consequently, in this issue, scholars from different parts of the continent have interrogated the multiple challenges of nation building and policy studies. The first article identifies resource course as a major threat to nation building in Nigeria. That was followed by the discourse on how foreign migrant remittances promote nation building in the African city of Benin.
