Human Resources Development (HRD) and the Universal Basic Education (UBE) in Nigeria

Adokiye A. Okujagu


Education, due to its potency, has become recognized as a process by which individuals and society at large can attain their fullest potential. Therefore, education is critical for harnessing human resources to address issues arising from national development and the environment. Laying a solid foundation for education to adequately tap and expand human capital development is of utmost importance if development issues would be addressed using education as an instrument. The level of basic education in developing countries of the world is very low to the effect that it could hinder human resources development. It has, therefore, become imperative to re-examine the basic education scheme and its implementation as a road map to human resources development. Hence, this paper reviews basic education as a tool to develop human resources in Nigeria. In course of the review solutions were proffered and recommendations made to address identified challenges.
