The Nigerian foreign ministry is a statutory body created to handle the external push of Nigeria's domestic vision and ideals; it is headed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nigeria Amb. Aminu Bashir Wali. As of late its mission has geared towards increasing awareness about Nigeria's economic potential. It is part of the government's executive branch.
From 1961 to 1965, Jaja Wachuku was the First substantive Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Commonwealth Relations, later called External Affairs. Before Wachuku's tenure, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, the then Prime Minister, doubled as Foreign Affairs advocate of Nigeria from 1960 to 1961 when his government created an official Foreign Affairs and Commonwealth Relations ministerial position in favour of Mr. Wachuku as pioneer Minister.
Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa set the foundation of the Nigerian foreign policy in his maiden speech to the United Nations General Assembly.
