Leadership, Governance and Corruption in Nigeria
This paper examines the effect of corruption on governance and leadership in nation building, and the instrumentality by which the prevalent democratic system has been trying to curb/ eradicate corruption and instill good governance in Nigeria. The paper believes that fighting corruption at all levels is a priority, as it constitutes a serious barrier to effective resource mobilisation and allocation, and diverts resources away from activities that are vital to poverty eradication and sustainable economic development.
