Although a number of texts have been written on the topic “Public Administration in Nigeria”, much has not been written about the existing policy making structures and policy makers in Nigeria. Also, few texts write elaborately on the programmes and projects initiated and implemented in Nigeria.

This book centers on the policy making structures and the programmes initiated and implemented during the different periods of governance in Nigeria. It critically analyzes the activities of the country under the various political leadership which, for fifty years, have been led by the males. Efforts have been made to list the programmes, projects and strategies applied to improve the Nigerian economy.

Part of the NEEDS (2005) document has been reproduced to help the readers assess the extent to which Nigeria has implemented the programmes under the NEEDS/SEEDS strategies earlier adopted by political leaders.

As a lecturer, the author has benefited from the research findings of others and she owes her gratitude to them by quoting source.
