Question and answer
Factors that can hinder a successful operation of democracy in Nigeria
Currently, Nigeria lacks the necessary democratic values (civil and human rights abuse is rampant, freedom of speech and expression is hampered, lack of social security, distributive justice and credible political opposition, etc), [ hence the rampant social unrest in the polity. While some sections of the society abhor the taking of human life, others (because of their religious belief) perceive the ‘killing of people in the name of Allah’ as a ‘religious duty.’ This type of behavior does not augur well in a democracy! Thus, to transform its democratic experiment into a true democracy the
nation must control social disturbances, establish and nurture the essential political institutions to protect the people’s rights, lives and properties. The absence of true federalism in Nigeria is a stumbling block to the nation’s ongoing democratic enterprise. The federal government is very overbearing as it controls about 80 per cent of the resources in the country, leaving state and local governments at its mercy. Therefore, true federalism would enable each region, state, or geopolitical zone to control their resources and to have access to the necessary funds for community development programs. It is only true federalism that can guarantee fairness and justice in the society ]
