THE NIGERIAN PROBLEMS OF DEVELOPMENT AND HUMAN SECURITY
In the present age of globalisation, the threats to mankind not only arise from weapons of mass destruction and other conventional challenges but also arise from other serious issues, e.g. terrorism, secret cuts activities, homosexuals, trafficking in women and drug abuse. These issues can cause adverse effects on national security and the sustainable development of any nation in the age of globalisation. The present study examined the interwoven issues of human security and development in Nigeria. The paper asks and answers questions concerning to why the standard of living most Nigerians continues to shrink and the reasons why successive governments have been unable to lead the nation on the path of human security and development. The study analysed the changing concept of security parameters with special emphasis on the issues of human security and its relation to development. The data analysed during this research was gathered qualitatively from secondary sources, which included journals, books and publications from international and governmental organisations. The present study identified that the success of Nigeria’s economic re-engineering, depends on the government’s ability not only to push through macroeconomic reforms but also to address deeprooted socio-political issues. The study also recommends and suggests some suitable steps in promoting human security and in bringing all-round development to Nigeria. This research is carried out using critical analysis.
