Ideologies, Party Politics and Nigeria’s Politico-economic Development

Godwin Ichimi, PhD

Abstract: This paper aims at interrogating the apparent dearth of ideology, particularly at the level of party politics, in Nigeria. It is contended however that, in realty, beneath this seeming dearth of ideology there is a convergence of commitment to some normative values and ideas by the political class which is distinctively neoliberal.This ideological predilection underpins the posture of the state as it does the manifestoes of the ruling and opposition parties. Against this backdrop, this paper engaged with the nexus between ideology, party politics and Nigeria’s politico-economy and holds that it is of critical imperative for the managers of state to be aware of and factor in the contradictions which this neoliberal ideological posture entails for the quest for national development.
