Abstract

Nigeria is blessed with abundance human and natural resources but despite its huge array of
resources, the economy has remained stagnant. The paper examined the impact of corruption and
social conflict on national development in Nigeria. Corruption and social conflicts are perceived as
fundamental factors to national development in Nigeria since independence in 1960 and that colossal
sum of fund has been lost to corruption and social conflicts such that could have been ploughed to
national development. The paper was a descriptive study that relied on secondary data sources. In
order to bring about sustainable development and stability in the country this paper recommended that
policies which induce or provide opportunity for corruption should be addressed broadly from the
moral, parental, cultural, ethnical, political, judicial, physiological and economic perspective. Politics
of exclusion should be avoided to minimize disaffection that could generate social conflict while
government must be proactive in facing developmental challenges.
