Main Article Content
Nigeria and Niger Republic have long lasting relationship that pre-dates the coming of foreign powers in the African soil. Maradi region in particular has had lasting relations with the Sokoto Caliphate. Niger had a long history of peaceful co-existence with Nigeria and its neighbors. However, the Tuaregs and Tubus rebellions of the 1960s brought about social unrests. With the collapse of the World Uranium Market in the 1980s the country's economy entered into recession. In the case of Nigeria political crisis since independence, years of military dictatorship, political hooliganism, massive corruption, has resulted in acute poverty, unemployment and terrorism particularly with advent of the deadly Boko Haram sect. This also affects the school system in Nigeria. Poor conflict management in the school system has resulted in turning out thousands of graduates from the school system into the community who are lacking the necessary values of peaceful co-existence. This paper therefore, proposes and submits that the establishment of lasting peace and attainment of rapid socio cultural development in an atmosphere of fruitful relations between Niger Republic and Nigeria should begin with the provision of adequate security and proper management of conflicts in the school system, which, produce graduates that will champion the development of Maradi and Nigeria. This will go a long way towards consolidating the good relationship between Niger and Maradi Region by ensuring economic prosperity, political development, religious understanding educational exchange, as well as scientific and technological development.
