Values: Intellectuals and Policy Process in Nigeria: A Theoretical Cum Ideological Explanation
The study makes a critical analysis of intellectuals (the academia and other learned members of the society) in Nigeria’s policy process. It argues that intellectuals often live up to expectation when they find themselves in the corridors of power. The study tries to offer explanation for this situation arguing that this is a result of the belief system of these intellectuals. Thus, they often drift from what they write preach as intellectuals to a very different system of action when they find themselves in governance positions.
