Confidence in Diplomacy


    Abdul Rimdap was the only one of 20 brothers and sisters to go to school, and it would never have happened if he had not eavesdropped on a class at his village school and put his hand up outside the window to answer a question which had defeated the pupils. He went on to college and excelled sufficiently to be accepted by the Nigerian Foreign Service. There followed a distinguished international career during which he played leading ambassadorial roles for Nigeria in Ethiopia, Zambia, Pakistan, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Germany, helping to shape Nigerian foreign policy, being involved in the dismantling of apartheid and playing an important role in human rights issues at a critical time in his country’s history. He retired from his final post, as Ambassador to Germany, in 2010.
