MAO TSE-TUNG’S SOCIO-POLITICAL THOUHTS AND CHINAS’S BREAK-THROUGHS: IMPLICATIONS FOR NIGERIA
In this article, ‘Mao Tse-Tung’s socio-political thoughts and China’s breakthrough’, implication for Nigeria, I posit, that authentic development that is integral and holistic is not something that one just stumbles upon, or something that happens by accident. It is rather something that requires good vision, careful planning and great sacrifice on the part of all the stakeholders. The contention of this article is that China got her breakthrough through the visionary leadership of Mao and his foresight in planning. He carefully looked at agriculture, homo-culture and industry as areas that needed real attention. The three areas were key to China’s breakthrough. The paper argues that Nigeria can take a clue from China to re-plan her developmental needs in the socio-political thoughts of Mao as highlighted in the paper. The paper uses the philosophical method of analysis.
