Description

ABSTRACT

One of the greatest development challenges facing developing countries in today’s globalized world is the high incidence of political malfeasance and corruption. Nigeria, like most countries in the sub-Saharan African region has been vigorously confronted with the malaise of corruption. Thus the spate of corruption in Nigeria has found expression not only in public offices and institutions but other critical social milieu namely, the family, schools, places of worship, electioneering activities, had had a fair share of corrupt practices bedeviling them. This study therefore discussed political corruption and its effect in the Nigerian government and politics. This study is a theoretical analysis of the concept and context of political corruption in the light of the penultimate role of the political elites who are variously known to be in control of the nation’s common wealth. The study adopts secondary sources of data collection for overall understanding of the subject matter. Literatures were gathered from works of scholars in the area of investigations under review. The study argues that for corruption to be curtailed in Nigeria, the structure of social behavioral control like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFC) should be restructured and depoliticized. The study sums up with conclusions and other vital policy recommendations for effective sustenance and consolidation of democratic objectives in Nigeria in the 21st century and beyond.
