Nations are an important part of modern society. As an integral part of the modern world, therefore, Nigerians are rightly concerned about nation-building. Nation do not happen by mere historical accident, rather, they are built by men and women with vision and resolve. Nation-building is therefore, the product of conscious state-craft, not happenstance. Nigeria?s efforts at nation-building started since independence to address issues that have predated 1960. The study observes that the Nigerian nation-building endeavour is hampered by her historical antecedence, poor leadership, corruption, and contentious constitutional provisions. The argument of this study is that the creation of dependable institutions and a patriotic demonstration of political will address the challenges of nation-building in Nigeria.
