Security, Political Economic and Social Challenges in Nigeria for the period (2010-2018)
Nigeria suffers from economic, social and political challenges, and economic challenges were represented by dependence on one resource (oil), rampant corruption in all the joints of the state, and the high rate of unemployment and poverty. As for the social challenges, they were represented by conflicts between the northern and southern regions (Muslims - Christians) over who would lead the country. Also tribal conflicts over wealth, while political challenges were represented by the absence of political participation and the emergence of terrorist movements, as well as the struggle between political parties over power with one party dominating the joints of the state.
