This paper seeks to discuss Israeli-Nigeria bilateral relations from 1999 to 2018. While it aims at identifying and analysing
various changes that have taken place in the last two decades of their relations, the research intends to look at the direction the
relations between the two countries have focused within the period under study. The research relies on primary and
secondary sources for data collection, namely newspapers, journal articles and books. Since the return of democratic rule in
1999, Israel and Nigeria have continued to interact on global and regional issues. Both countries have constituently
maintained diplomatic, economic, technological and cultural cooperation. The vast economic differences between Israel and
Nigeria present a greater opportunity for both countries within the context of comparative advantage. Domestic realities such
as insecurity tended to complicate their relationships, thereby hindering Israelis’ attempt to wield political and diplomatic
influence with Nigerian government like Western nations. The bilateral relations between the nations have focused on
advancement of digital technology, information security and knowledge-based economy.
