The article analyses the relative importance of social security and examines the general social condition in Nigeria from the prism of social security regulations. It focuses special attention on issues of poverty, unemployment, education and the general health status of the citizenry. It argues that the absence of a virile and functional social security law is not unconnected with some of the social problems confronting the nation. The article concludes that the enactment of more broad-based and all-inclusive social security legislation would not only help resolve some of the social turmoil militating against meaningful development in the country, but also provide avenue for the enhancement of social stability and social development of the nation.
