A NEXUS BETWEEN HIGHER EDUCATION, SECURITY CHALLENGES AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA
Abstract: This paper examines the missing link between higher education, security challenges and sustainable development in Nigeria. It could be said that the higher education could be intertwined and integrated in the issues surrounding security challenges and the plight of sustainable development in Nigeria. The paper avers that higher education is central to shaping attitudes and social interaction and both are critical to addressing insecurity challenges and sustainable development. It could be affirmed that government alone cannot provide sustainable development. The paper emphasizes developed economies where higher education is an engine for development in which individuals, religious groups, communities, and businesses ought to partake in providing education that leverages development. To this end, the paper submits that higher education could be a functional tool in curbing insecurity challenges and ensuring sustainable development in Nigeria provided the curriculum is properly implemented and monitored towards blending and interfacing local wisdom with global knowledge, values and skills, which will develop the student to become a citizen of Nigeria as well as a citizen of the global village.
