This article takes an analytical look at the theory of the concept of “sustainable development” with special reference to its underlying pillars or domains and the principles that should guide strides towards economic growth and development among nations in order to attain results that could be considered as balanced, just and equitable for generations both in the short and long run. The general global imperatives which make the application of sustainable development principles to growth and development efforts urgent were also highlighted. Against this background, the authors then critically examined the twin concepts of economic growth and development and followed this up with highlights of growth and development challenges of the Nigerian economy. The study posits that the mode of current resource extraction and usage in the economy would appear to overemphasize the needs of the present and that corruption and self-seeking and/or inept leadership separately and jointly constitute the bane of Nigeria’s growth and development efforts. On the basis of these, a number of conclusions were drawn, followed by recommendations for redress.

African and European imperialism has been a dominant theme of African History or Afro-European incursion in World History. This has been a dominant historical phenomenon in the nineteenth and twentieth Centuries in historical documentations. In this wise, the article delves into the challenge of reconstructing the concept of imperialism with particular reference to the continent of Africa. This is done with a view of ascertaining the forms of imperialism such as the pillage of Africa’s natural resources, trade and colonization. Under these stages, the work lays credence to the mercantile era, the colonial stage, neo-colonial stage, and globalization. The study reveals that in whatever form and at any stage of imperialism, the basic aim has been the exploitation of Africa. In this regard, the chapter concludes that in order to justify their claims of imperial activities in Africa, the European deploys different arguments to explain the causes of imperialism namely: economic arguments, humanitarian arguments, strategy, and moral grounds.

This article considers Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as an imperative for the attainment of quality secondary education in Nigeria. It argues that secondary education constitutes the foundation of western education and if it is supported with ICT, it will prepare the learner for holistic education. ICT also makes education accessible and increases its quality. The article identifies and discusses some of the problems facing effective secondary education to include high ICT illiteracy rates, poor English language competence, attitude of government, and poor supply of amenities among others. It suggests that Government should initiate ways of fostering the ICT literacy skills of teachers by sponsoring them to workshops and short term programmes while head teachers on their part should ensure that computer studies are introduced right at the primary school level. It also suggests that government should give teachers at the primary and secondary levels better and improved work conditions to improve the quality of education offered at these levels.
