Right from the cradles, man has shown subsisting quest to conquer, dominate or master his physical and social environments. Historical accounts attest that irrespective of the clime or people, that man has generally strove to make progress or develop in response to his environment and its challenges. A critical factor in this has been technology. Then today, technology is increasingly playing a pivotal role, not only in development but also in power relations. The possession of technology, particularly in the right aggregate has often determined the social location or power position of the contenders of power. The purpose of this paper is to explore the place of technology in Nigeria’s development, underdevelopment and interstate relations.
