INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AND ITS CHALLENGES IN NIGERIA IN THE 21ST CENTURY
This paper addressed the challenges inhibiting industrial development of Nigeria and which kept her in perpetual bondage of other industrial developed countries of the world. These challenges include; inadequate generation and supply of power and water, poor transportation network, insecurity and unfavourable policies, inadequacy of skilled manpower; technological changes, low patronage of locally produced products and political considerations. On the concluding part,
suggestions were offered which in the opinion of the writers if religiously implemented, would boost rapid industrial development of Nigeria, curb brain drain
in industries and other negative vices.
