ABSTRACT

There is no gainsaying the fact that development is essential and inevitable in every human society. Thus every society strives towards development invariably giving rise to uneven or unequal development. In other words, it gives rise to a situation whereby some societies develop at a greater pace than others. This can be attributed to the divergent developmental challenges peculiar to that society. For the society to develop, therefore, it must surmount all these hurdles. Nigeria and other States tagged the Global South have long been bedeviled with a plethora of developmental woes thus necessitating the launching of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the United Nations in 2000. The MDGs include eight goals the major thrust of which is to halve poverty by the year 2015. Though modest in its entirety, the MDGs mark a departure from previously internationally generated development programmes and policies as it is centred on human welfare with no conditionalities attached. The Marxist Theory of the State was employed in the broad task of this study which is to explore the MDGs and challenges of development in Nigeria. This study equally shows the link between political corruption and policy
implementation.
