NIGERIA’S QUEST FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN THE 21ST CENTURY: THE IMPERATIVE OF A MULTIFACETED APPROACH TO TACKLING THE NATION’S CHALLENGES

Abstract

The occasion of Nigeria’s 100 years of existence as a nation, provides a useful opportunity to appraise the challenges of the country in not only the natural environment, but also in the man-made environments of socio-economic, built and political governmental environments, as well as the spiritual environment. This appraisal is done in this paper, which also offers suggestions on how to go about tackling the multifarious challenges, using the multidisciplinary approach that will involve specialist researchers, as well as accommodating contributions of knowledgeable people. The paper also examines how some of these challenges impact others, by giving rise to them or worsening them. Examples of such challenges include those of godliness, education, leadership, corruption, right values and appropriate attitudes. The paper concludes by recommending that the challenges of the nation must be given priority attention and fixed, as a first step before taking further steps towards moving the country forward, in our bid to attain sustainable development of the country
