Abstract

Nigeria is a highly endowed nation with human and material resources which requires careful, effective and efficient strategies to develop into a prosperous society. Further to the Nigeria’s Vision 2020 which is a perspective plan; an economic business plan intended to make Nigeria a fully developed economy by the year 2020; literacy is expected to be at the forefront of the implementation process of any national strategic plan/policy framework required for the attainment of the vision. Literacy plays a pivotal role as an agent of change and societal development, in a society that understands its value and need. The paper looks at the need for development policies that would move Nigeria forward utilizing effective lieracy programmes and adult education strategies for community growth.
