Corruption & Administration in Nigeria: The Character of the State Thesis

By Okechukwu Eme  et al


The objective of this paper is to explore the linkage between corruption and administration by
using Nigeria as a case study. This is because corruption has been around for a very long
time and will be around in the future unless governments figure out effective ways to combat
it. Though various anti-corruption strategies have been designed and implemented. Toward
the end of the twentieth century economics turned their attention to corruption that
beforehand was the subject of sociology, political science, history, public administration, and
criminal law researches. Despite the vivid link between corruption and economic
performance hot debates arose to determine the nature (negative or positive) of this
correlation. Reviewing the results of these empirical studies we can conclude that corruption
in few cases can boost economic growth but only in the short run, for in the long-run and in
general, corruption destroys the economy and the culture and impedes welfare. All empirical
results of different research programs support the proposition that corruption inhibits
economic performance. The surveyed studies provide evidence that corruption may seriously
inhibit long-term economic growth and increase the volatility of business cycles. Various
leading international organizations (the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and
Transparency international) national governments, scientists (despite their specialization)
regard corruption as damaging factor for development and democracy. This paper adopts a
qualitative methodology and uses the technique of content analysis and tables to document its
findings. The paper suggests active policy against corruption should be elaborated and
implemented in Nigeria.
