The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies held a seminar "Nigeria and the al-Qa'ida Challenge: National, Regional, and Global Implications" on March 23, 2012. Three panelists deliberated over the changing nature of Boko Haram as it appears to affiliate closer with al-Qa'ida as well as the Nigerian government's current state as a political body lacking widespread trust. One indicator of the general unrest that seems to be gripping Africa was the fact that Ambassador Al Maamoun Baba Lamine Keita was unable to attend the seminar as its fourth panelist due to a military coup d'etat which occurred in his country of Mali the day before the seminar was to take place. Above is a video of the event in its entirety.
