Historical Consciousness and Sustainable Development in Nigeria: The Experience of Niger Delta Communities

  • KE Orji


Development studies have become very strategic in charting the way forward for most Third World countries including Nigeria. A historical approach, which is the main thrust of this paper, intends to provide the building blocks, not only for economic advancement but for sustainable development in Nigeria that is development at the grass-root in such a way that the fate of the future generation will not be hampered. There is the hope that with this approach, the Nigerian economy can take a leap from poverty reduction to something close to poverty eradication. The peculiar experience of the Niger Delta communities presents a significant case study.
