The Development Universal Consortia
This study investigated the challenges of educational training and professionalism that confront oil rich developing countries especially, Nigeria in her development pattern. These challenges constrain institutional capacity development,which although,are not inherent are likely to be accentuated in the presence of abundant natural resource wealth. Sustained growth and elimination of poverty will for along time remain elusive in Sub Saharan African until the region succeeds in building, retaining and nurturing the required human and institutional capacity vital for grooming the success or generation and interfacing with other development partners and process. The critical challenges thrown up for investigation were the need to embark on massive educational training in the context of professionalism so as to indigenize major production processes to ensure more export of locally refined goods especially, in the oil and gas sector where we have more comparative advantage and remove the wage dichotomy between local and foreign wage earners. Appreciation and application of information and communication technologies in capacity development was also discussed. In order to have in-depth knowledge about the causality of these challenges,two sociological theories were utilized. These were Dependency and Marxist Perspectives. The methodology of analysis was descriptive and heuristic, drawing from the experience of several oil producing developing countries and one earlier analysis.It is expected that the findings of this study for policymakers, would emphasize sustained increase in human capital development.
