Leadership and Strategic Governance: The Pathway to Socio-Economic Sustainable Development in Nigeria
Keywords:Leadership, Strategic Governance, Sustainable Development
Nigeria, one of the populated black nations of the world have in recent times been embroiled in various hydra-headed menace that have left the country almost incapacitated. A country blessed with profound natural and human resources such as Nigeria would naturally be expected to soar on great wings to the pinnacle of socio-political, economic, and scientific greatness. However this germen expectation of many around the globe have suffered immense despair, as the country is plagued with tremendous socio-pathological situations such as economic collapse, poverty, kidnapping, crisis, terrorism and various degree of violence. In attempting a search as to a possible causal agent and factor to the nation’s submergence into this imbroglio, one realizes a polarized view as dimension to this problem. It is a truism, that while some remain convince that the causal string of Nigeria’s problems and setback is peculiarly corruption and mismanagement of funds, others hold tenaciously to the claims that there is an immense leadership flaw that culminates into various economic and socio-political collapse. The position of the leadership proponents is casted on the pillars that where the right kind of charismatic leaders with profound integrity are democratically installed, then the nation is bound to witness significant progress. This paper identifies the duo of leadership and strategic governance as an inseparable twin, significantly necessary for socio-political cum economic sustainable development in Nigeria.
