On Tuesday 8th June there will be an event at the British Library called “Nigeria – Africa’s Next Super Power?”.

It will be chaired by Jon Snow, and other panellists will include Neil McGregor (director of the British Museum), Father Matthew Kukah, Dr Abdul Raufu Mustapha (Lecturer in African Politics, University of Oxford) and Chika Unigwa (writer).

Guests will also be invited to a private viewing of the British Library’s Kingdom of Ife: Sculptures from West Africa exhibition.
The ticket includes entry to the private viewing, the debate and a glass of wine.
