One of the threads leading to Values Education and National Development can be traced back to Professor Otonti Nduka’s 1964 book, Western Education and the Nigerian Cultural Background. The editors of the current book have described Nduka’s 1964 work as “groundbreaking”. Forty-two years after the publication of that book, that is, in 2006, Otonti Nduka Foundation for Values Education was established to continue, expand and institutionalize the work which started well before 1964 but only attained public knowledge in that year. It was this Foundation, with physical headquarters in port Harcourt, capital of Rivers State of Nigeria, that organized the two national conferences (2008 and 2010) on Values Education whose proceedings constitute the core of the current book, Values Education and National Development.
