Summary, Conclusion And Recommendations

5.1 Introduction

This chapter contains the final summary, conclusion and recommendations of this project work. It tells about the final findings, evaluation and opinion of the researcher.

5.2 Summary Of Findings

As a way of summary, it has been demonstrated that globalization as a phenomenon has assumed a new phase in contemporary global political economy and that Nigeria must equip and package itself effectively to confront its challenges in the 21st century. This work also articulated the view that globalization in its current dimension is characterized by three distinct but interrelated features: the integration of all economic systems of the nation states into global economy, the primary and supremacy of international markets and international competitiveness and the phenomenal rise in the internalization of labour, capital and portfolio investments.

5.2 Conclusion

Nigeria cannot afford to remain aloof and be completely isolated from the global economic interplay. The country should make conscious efforts to transform the economy so as to fully harness the benefits of globalization. The various endogenous and exogenous constraints that have continued to undermine macro economic stability in the country should be seriously tackled. The critical sectors of the economy that constitutes the basis for sustainable growth e.g. agriculture, mining, industry and energy should be the core concern of economic development.

5.4 Recommendations

The following recommendations can be of great help if properly and fully applied:

  1. The nation’s technological base should be re-activated. Hence the need to earnestly complete the Ajaokuta steel rolling mill, the Aladja steel plant and the Katsina, Jos and Oshogbo steel rolling mills.
  2. In concert with other African states and using the instrumentality of new partnership for African development (NEPAD), Nigeria should work assiduously to ensure the collaborative involvement of all stakeholders in African development through the promotion of regional economic blocs.
  3. Lastly, it must be stressed that given the nature and character of the Nigerian state with its inherent weak domestic base, globalization, certainly has its adverse implications on the nations economy. However, in order to minimize the negative effects and harness the whatever benefits of the current growing and overwhelming globalization trend, there is the necessity for a complete restructuring and transformation of the Nigerian political economy.
