Individual development as the bedrock of national development

Arinze Agbanusi


Many governments of nations, and the leadership of many other human societies and organizations, often claim to aspire towards the development of their nations, societies and organizations, as the case may be. However, it is easy for any seeker of development to seek infrastructural development as the crux of development. Using the hermeneutics method, this work argues that for any other form of development to be achieved, especially national development, emphasis must be placed on individual development. The thesis of the work is that the nucleus of national development is individual development. It is part of the conclusion of the work that all leaders and all well-meaning citizens of nations and societies must aspire towards achieving individual development, in order to achieve national development.
