One of the major concerns in international development today is the effectiveness of programs for promoting widespread socio-economic growth in a country. In Regional Disparities in Nigeria's Development, Ebenezer Aka investigates whether planning programs have encouraged or hindered substantial socio-economic development throughout Nigeria. He provides an overview of the various development programs that have been implemented, discussing their objectives, strategies and performances as well as their implications for the 21st century. He reveals that over time there has actually been a divergence rather than a convergence of regional disparities and inequalities, which he meticulously analyzes from socio-cultural, economic, political and administrative perspectives. An indispensable resource for Nigerian policy makers, this book will also interest social scientists who study international development.
