NIGERIA INDUSTRIALIZATION AND NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT: THE NEED FOR SOCIAL WORK INTERVENTION
AbstractIndustrialization refers to the mass production of goods in a factory system which involves some degree of mechanized production technology. It is the process by which an economy is transformed from primarily agricultural to one based on the manufacturing of goods. Individual manual labour is often replaced by mechanized mass production and crapesmen are replaced by assembly lines. The important of industrialization in national development cannot be over emphasized. However many factors are militating against industrialization and nation development and these call for increate social work intervention. Social work is an agent of social transformation. It transforms both people and nations. It is a profession that is good at helping people and nation to overcome difficulties and improves the lives of the people and conditions of the nation. Social work is committed to the well being of people and nation. The greatest asset of any nation is its people and their various abilities.
