Corruption In Nigeria: A Threat To Sustainable Political Development
CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA: A THREAT TO SUSTAINABLE POLITICAL DEVELOPMENT
It is not exaggeration of the tragic events of the country since independence, to say that all efforts to establish a just and efficient administration have been frustrated by corruption. The evil exists in every facet of our society. You bribe to get your child into a school, you pay to secure a job and you also continue to pay in some cases to retain it. Corruption is an act which deviates from the formal rules of conduct governing the actions of someone in a position of public authority because of private regarding motives such as wealth, power or status. Sustainable development in human society is not a one sided process rather multi-sided issues; individuals perceive development as increase in the skill and ability, it is viewed as maximum freedom, the ability to create responsibility. This paper tries to look at the issues affecting sustainable development in Nigeria. The author viewed the concept of corruption, political development and corruption, the causes as well as the effects of corruption on the economy.
