ABSTRACT

An ideal democracy is one that recognizes and encourage political participation. Apart from it  being a fundamental right, active or passive political participation fosters development. A great percentage of the populations of Danja,Sabuwa and Funtua Local Government Areas participate both  actively and  passively in politics. Unfortunately however, as much as people desire to be involved in matters affecting them, the situation is not so, therefore,  social development is very low. This  study  focused on political participation and  the development of social infrastructures in the three  Local Government Areas of Katsina State  with  particular emphasis on health and education as components of social development. For the  purpose of this study both primary and secondary sources of  data were explored. The  data was calculated and analyzed using the simple percentage. The research revealed that people take part in multiple political activities but have little or no say in decision making. The study therefore recommended that people should be involved in problem  identification,  planning, budgeting, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of matters that affect them so as to harmonize  political participation and the  development  of social   infrastructures in the three  Local Government Areas

SUMMARY:

An ideal democracy is one that recognizes and encourage political participation. Apart from it  being a fundamental right, active or passive political participation fosters development. A great percentage of the populations of Danja,Sabuwa and Funtua Local Government Areas participate both  actively and  passively in politics.
