Literacy and Politics in Nigeria:A Gruesome Negation of Goals
NTTA U. NTTA
The Nigerian people no longer require a soothsayer or diviner to confirm that hue is something abnormal with our brand of politics. Both the cursory and the meticulous observers would come to this helpless conclusion after experiencing more than three decades of politics of trauma and woes. The political scenario becomes more alarming and frustrating when paradoxically the cure turns out to be the poison that kills the patient. One would have thought that the higher the number of literate persons in politics, the better the quality of political manoeuvre and dispensations in our country. This premise has regrettably been faulted in Nigerian. We recognize that there is a significant positive correlation between literacy and politics.
