Problems and Challenges of Policy Implementation for National Development



As policies and programmes continue to fail in Nigeria, public confidence in government ability to achieve national development erodes. Analysis in public policy implementation continually assumes a greater significance. Public policy is not a bed of roses; it is often challenging and creative, many proposals faced obstacles on their way to implementation. Most proposals do not survive and those that do, emerged mutilated or distorted, so that they no longer serves their intended purposes. The objectives of the paper are to examine the problems and challenges of policy implementation in Nigeria. The paper relies on secondary data for its presentation and analysis. It is of the view that effective policy implementation can only be achieved not only through a continuous political commitment and clear definition of responsibilities and coordination, but also through genuine commitment to eradication of corruption at all levels of government.
