Title:Urban bias in nigerian development planning
Author:Okowa, W.J.
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:rural-urban disparity
revenue allocation
Abstract:In Nigeria, the allocation of public sector resources and public policy in general tends to be biased in favour of the urban sector. A number of political, economic, historical and ideological factors predispose policymakers to be urban biased in resource allocation. There is clear evidence of this in successive National Development Plans. The problem is serious and the government must, in the interests of the nation, summon the political will to address the issue. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
