Abstract

It the researchers’ opinion that integrating entrepreneurial education skills in Social studies pedagogy will render tremendous assistance in wealth creation and jobs among unemployed Nigerians for self reliance thereby reducing poverty and maintaining sustainable national development. In this paper, the relevance of integrating entrepreneurial education skills in Social studies pedagogy for poverty reduction and sustainable development were discussed and recommendations were made.
