Abstract:Effective communication leads to the development of both the rural and urban sectors of any forward-looking nation, and by its nature, it constitutes a powerful instrument for education, public awareness and attitude formation. Education aims at informing and internalising, which lead to crystallization of new skills, new aspirations and new goals. For communication to be meaningful, people need to be aware of the deficiencies in their present way of life. They also need to be motivated and persuaded to adopt new practices. Agencies of nonformal education in Nigeria include the Directorate of Mass Mobilization for Social and Economic Recovery (Mamser), the Directorate of Food, Roads and Rural Infrastructure, and the National Directorate of Employment. Amongst the communication modes that work in nonformal education: literacy programmes, training programmes, extension services, brigades, village polytechnics, radio and correspondence courses, and the cinema van.
