This Web site was built and managed for the Association of Nigerian Scholars for Dialogue (ANSD) in the late 1990s. ANSD was among many organizations that were formed in the Nigerian Diaspora in the wake of General Sani Abacha's dictatorship in Nigeria. Its primary purpose was to seek a deeper understanding of Nigeria's political ills through intellectual dialogue. Like most other such Nigerian organizations of the late 1990s, ANSD folded up its operations in 1999, following the sudden and mysterious death of Sani Abacha in Abuja and the collapse of his regime. Unlike such other associations, however, ANSD documented its activities in a Web site. Some items in that Web site may be quite valuable for future research, probably from the point of view of history.

The pages that follow in this Web site are an archival retention of the material from ANSD's Web site. For management purposes, they are linked to, which was developed from the experiences of managing ANSD's Web site
