Abstract:

The recognition of the rights of every ethnic group to participate in governance (at local and central level) in a multiethnic state is an indispensable factor for establishing and sustaining a just and egalitarian society. This study established that the exclusivity of the minority spells majority dictatorship and conflicts rather than the desired socio-political and economic development of Nigeria polity. This study represents an attempt to understand the reasons why the struggle to ensure national development has proved abortive in Nigeria and the interplay of ethnic cultures, supported by the incivility of Nigeria political leaders, hence the sterility of socio-political, economic and national integration. 

Keywords: Ethnicity, Exclusivity, Development, Underdevelopment, Uncivil politics, Ethnic culture.
