Ethnic Structure, Inequality and Governance of the Public Sector in Nigeria.

Abstract

This paper investigates Nigeria's contradictory process of ethno-regional fragmentation side-by-side with a centralizing nation-building agenda. It explores the ethno-regional inequalities in Nigeria, particularly in the political, bureaucratic, and educational apparatuses of the state. Finally, it looks at various efforts aimed at reforming the lopsided nature of the Nigerian federation, and examines why they have not yielded the desired results.
