Abstract

The paper examined the problems and consequences associated with leadership selection processes in Nigeria. It posited that the Nation's underdevelopment in all its ramifications revolves around poor leadership quality resulting from deficiencies in selection processes. It noted that selection (election) processes in Nigeria are devoid of strategies that yield good quality and effective leadership. The paper asserted that in order to ensure effective leadership that is development-oriented, psychological assessment must be an indispensable part and parcel of the selection process.
