Political development in Nigeria in the past 50 years have exposed the fragility of the multi-ethnic federation. At this age the country still lacks adequate strategy to resolve ethnic-religions conflicts threatening the unity of the country. This article attempts to highlight the particular interest of the diaspora and the role they could play in preventing inter-ethnic skirmishes. It argues that the Nigerian diasporas as a network of professionals abroad are capable of engaging the government in conflict transformation, that will create a harmonious entity. An environment also conducive for participatory democracy.
