MANAGEMENT OF DEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA

PREFACE
In government or private sector business does not do anything right without planning. This is a well established fact even in the days of the primitive man. It is even more necessary today to plan for any meaningful activity before implementation. Many government and private business have spent quite considerable resources in this regard with measurable success or failure. This book is intended to review the management of developmental planning in Nigeria since independence in 1960.
Various administration and in some measure tried to manage developmental process for the nation. Some of the plans hardly achieve its intended objective due to poor planning, poor implementation, lack of accurate data, corruption, and no political will to address the major constraints. The book is intended to expose the students and other readers to the interplay and interdisciplinary relationship between management of national development plan and business operation. It is prepared to show the steps in policy formulation, the players and the plan as it is intended to be implemented for the growth of the nation. This book did not go into in-depth calculation but is geared toward explaining the steps taken to prepare a management development plan and how the plan will be implemented. The final intention is to arouse discussion on how government in Nigeria manage development planning. It will also review the relationship in the three tiers of government the executive, legislative and judiciary. It will look into the level of participation by, the political party, interest groups, pressure groups and the constituency in the management of National development plan. This book is written in Nigeria context but reference were made of other countries, it is in line with the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) programmes.
