Author(s) : Amobi P. Chiamogu, Uzodinma C. Okafor

Abstract :   Nigerian Nation Is Faced With So Many Challenges. These Have Earned The State A Disreputable Status In Terms Of Development Amongst Comity Of Nations. Xraying The State From Creation To Date, To A Large Extent, There Is No Denial Of The Fact That The Unpleasant Situations Hinge So Much On The Kind Of Governance The State Has Been Subjected To Over The Decades. Those That Have Wielded Power In The Country Have Been Self-centred That The Will And The Good Of The Governed Have Been Relegated To The Background In Order To Actualize Their Personal Interests. In Spite Of Claims By Successive Regimes To Have Governed To Better The Lives Of The Citizenry, The Obvious Remains That What Is Obtainable Leaves Much To Be Desired. This Study Traces The Causes Of These Challenges To Groups That Have Governed And/or Governing The Country, Thus, Adopted The Elite Theory For Its Analysis. With The Aid Of The Theory, It Shows The Extent The Activities Of These Few Persons Have Contributed In Stagnating And Stifling Development In The State. It Concludes That There Is Need For An Honest Political Leadership That Would Bring About The Much Needed Development In The Country. Therefore, Makes A Case For The Restructuring Of The State To Give Room For The Emergence Of Purposeful, Viable And Honest Leadership With Vision And Strong Will As One Of The Ways Forward.
