NATIONAL development AND GOVERNANCE IN nigeria
NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND GOVERNANCE IN NIGERIA
The achievement of a higher value level of any development in such a way that its population gain natural attachment to governance is the source of pride for any administration. However, for a nation to be in a developmental stage, three prerequisites must be met, which include sociopolitical and economic stability.
The difference between industrialised and developing countries is not static or narrowing, but rather growing. The developing world is home to the vast majority of the globe's people. The issue of urbanisation, rural stagnation, unemployment, and growing disparities continues to plague less developed countries, including Nigeria.
Accelerated progress is tough to achieve. This bleak situation worries stack holders as well as the general public. Despite its vast resources, Nigeria has been unable to achieve real growth.
This has had a significant impact on her efforts to improve the quality of life for her inhabitants. Poverty, unemployment, and famine continue to infect every corner of the country.
Development is necessary for any country's growth and survival. Effective tactics must be developed in order to successfully increase meaningful development. In this paper, we study the path of national development in Nigeria and provide a practical approach to national development.
The paper is divided further as follows. We begin by introducing the research and clarifying some crucial concepts. Following that, we'll take a quick look at several fundamental topics.
Following that, we briefly review several attempted development techniques in Nigeria as well as the issues of national development; finally, we briefly examine models of development across the Asian continent.
Finally, the final section offers recommendations based on the study of Asian development models as a viable choice for Nigeria's national development objectives.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE problem
One, basic infrastructure and social services that are taken for granted in many nations are pitifully poor or non-existent in Nigeria.
Two, the factors and circumstances of production, particularly land, capital, infrastructure, and services, are extremely difficult to get, resulting in de-industrialization and manufacturing failure. This indicates that economic facilities are inadequate.
Three, in addition to being a poor social service, the educational system lacks quality, paper orientation, and quality.
Four, the health-care delivery system at the primary, secondary, and tertiary levels kills more people than it rescues. The phenomena of bourgeois medicine has commodified health care significantly.
Five, agriculture, the largest contributor to Nigeria's GDP (40 percent) and the largest employer of labour (60 percent), is underdeveloped due to neglect and inadequate policy administration.
Sixth, ethics and values, which serve as the moral compass and glue of society, have devolved into negative transcendentalism, normlessness, and criminality. The reward-punishment system is ineffective, and moral decay is widespread.
Seventh, peace, social, and protective security are continually endangered at the society and individual levels as a result of a mixture of definable social, economic, and political reasons, one of which is elite exploitation of socio-cultural divides or political violence. Another issue is ineffective policing.
Eight, abundant solid minerals have been overlooked or abandoned. That is, prior to the discovery of solid minerals, the Nigerian economy was supported.
Nine, political and governmental corruption is at an all-time high.
1.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
One is to make accessible basic infrastructure and social services that are taken for granted in many countries.
Two, to create a worldwide development cooperation.
Three, to make education a requirement in order to minimise illiteracy.
Four, to ensure that health care is of high quality and well-equipped.
Five, to stay out of poverty.
Sixth, to improve agriculture and agricultural products.
Seventh, to promote unity and peace.
Eighth, to lower the level of corruption in politics and governance.
