Social ethnics and nation-building

It defines the concepts of social ethics and the end product of nation-building: development as well as appraised the evolution of nation – states by comparing England, United States of America and Nigeria. The paper also examines the challenge of nation building in the absence of entrenched ethical codes using the Niger-Delta question and the review of the 1999 Constitution by the National Assembly as case studies. Suggestions are also made to help Nigeria evolve as an ethically sound polity.
