NATIONAL SECURITY AND DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA
Security is presently a major challenge in Nigeria especially in Northern Nigeria. Nigerians and nonNigerians are killed on daily basis and in their numbers even the United Nations building and the Police Headquarters at the Federal Capital were bombed. Though the government claims to be on top of the situation, the problem persists. This work examines the nexus between National security and development in Nigeria. It uses public spending on security as proxy for security and the gross domestic product (GDP) as proxy for development. The work observes that there is a positive relationship between security and development in accordance with literature.
Key words: National security, development, economic growth.
