Knowledge management and development targets in Nigeria

Ajaikaiye and Olusola (2003) observed that the knowledge system of any progressive society performs a pivotal function in its development. However, they note that “in spite of this recognition, the attention given to Nigeria’s knowledge system has been weak and unstable, and has therefore affected its effectiveness and utilization.” Therefore, the challenge is for institutions and countries to determine and develop organizational practices, principles, guidelines, and approaches on how knowledge can be created, harnessed, shared, tracked, and distributed among government agencies, research communities, and the public (Riley, 2003).
