By Institute Of African Studies, University Of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Summary

Abstract:
The premise of this paper is that there is an urgent need for political education in Nigeria on account that Nigerian democracy is expected to accelerate national development. The reason for this submission is that Nigerian democracy has failed to meet the expectations of the masses. A number of indicators x-ray the lapses of the Nigerian democracy. They are: inability to provide the masses with good leadership, ethnicity, corruption, election crises and inadequate logistics, enthronement of mediocrity at the expense of meritocracy, violation of fundamental human rights of the citizens and other rape of democracy tendencies. To address these problems, the role of political education for political re-orientation of the citizens cannot be over-emphasized. The paper found that inadequate political education remains the bane of Nigerian democracy. That adequate political education to the citizenry will enable them have knowledge of the fundamental human rights. This will help them respect one another; shun ethnicity, corruption, favouritism and other acts capable of opposing democratic governance. The study recommended that government at all levels should organize political enlightenment programmes for the citizens towards the sustainable democracy for national development in Nigeria.
