Abstract:Nigeria, like most African nations, groans under the burden of underdevelopment. How it got into the present quagmire and why the people have remained accustomed to this mess are the subjects of long-standing discourse. This article suggests a solution that is strategic to the essence of development in Nigeria. Its assumption is that socioeconomic development is driven by a mental configuration specifically infused as collective software for desired change. It argues for a social-reform agenda that should be the emphasis of the Nigerian intellectual elite. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
