Abstract

This paper traces the evolution of the Commonwealth of Nations as one of the oldest voluntary international organizations of the world.  It further assesses the relevance of the organization in the light of recent developments which have affected both the primus inter pare – Great Britain and the other constituting members of the organization.  The paper submits that, even though there exist some problems within the fold, the role played by members such as Britain, Canada and Nigeria in Africa justifies/balances the obvious reasons for its establishment.
