This work attempted to assess the impact of Non-Governmental Organizations as third sector in national development in Nigeria. As accepted by many scholars, NGOs in Nigeria as in many countries of the world have significantly impacted on the lives of the people. Meanwhile, in areas where they have minor impact like in policy related issues, NGOs do influenced certain institutions to respond to the needs of the people. This makes people to conceive the NGOs as both actors and objects of development. Overall, as seen in this paper, NGOs attempt to improve social, economic, and productive conditions of the people. Their abilities make them complementary to State action as advocated by public choice approach of service delivery.

This work has the following recommendations:
