CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1       BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
A brief look at Nigeria today one can find out that we like fashion and everything new in Nigeria, the spirit that greeted the issue of globalization at its climax in 2000 seemed to have reduced.
The word globalization also seems to have gone the internet, computerization and cyber café. Globalization as an economic concept has been viewed at differently by different academic scholars, to represent so many things. However, globalization has been defined by John Vogi (Vanguard 2003) to mean a word that is liberalized of barriers to trade and invest where cooperation can produce and sell almost any service and can produce an
ywhere.
Globalization also in recent times involves trillions of dollars of investment. Globalization whether for or against remains a subject on which there has been comprehensive and unyielding misunderstanding especially concerning the constraints that it does not place on the power of government.
Moreover, since globalization also means the growing inter-dependence and inter-connectedness of the modern world, it boosts the economic development.
Furthermore, any nation or country globalization sets in the economy of that nation starts waxing strong. According to Ajodele (1995), the increase of movements of good, services, capita and information access, national borders is rapidly creating a single global economy.
The process is drawn by technological advance and reduction in the cost of international transactions, raise the share of trade in the world of production and increase the mobility of capital. According to Jack show, British Foreign secretary in a write up the international Guardian of September 10, 2011, he said attempts to manage change in global levels are in their infancy.  To him global market, global, world wide access to each other and information both give us a sense of belonging.
Steward (1990) noted that the impact of globalization on poor people  varies widely both between countries and within them, depending on initial circumstance and on the policies that government pursue. For instance in China poor people living in coastal province have benefited more from increased export and investment than those in land provinces.
Globalization however has continued to angender enormous debate controversy, protest and demonstrations that are some times violent in nature.
The reaction to the concept of globalization and its application to human development have been significantly more pronounced in the relationship between the developed western world which are owners of the new technologies and the poor developing countries which are by and large consumers of the new capitalist economy. Nigeria is in the global village hence is an importer of goods and services.
1.2       STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Globalization brings some systematic risk for example, the damaging effect of financial vitality were vividly illustrated in the Asian crises of 1997. Greater access to the global pool as saving through capital markets offers developing countries, the levels that can be supported from domestic savings alone, but the Asian experience indicate clearly that openness to start term portfolio flows can be damaging in the observe of sound macroeconomic position adequate domestic regulating and transparency in relationship between companies and banks.
One of the major reasons for creating the ministry of information and communication in Enugu state in particular is to bring about economic development in state. This noble objective or aim is not fully authorized because of the short comings of the ministry sequel to the fact that the use of human resource is not fully harnesses and lack of modern technological and information gadget is not in the ministry of communicate globalization properly to the people. The recent happenings from the developed, countries poor knowledge of information flow to the people from the ministry and lack of implementation of government policies to infrastructural development is one of the challenges of the ministry of information is fast becoming the basis of development and its absence or insufficient flow may in turn becomes a new dimension of poverty.
