Corruption in the Imo State Local Government System; a Case of Njaba Local Government Area, 2006-2010
By Okechukwu Eme et al
transformed in a corrupt but civil society like Nigeria. With huge resource expansion,
unparalleled and unprecedented corrupt practices have been the bane of democratic governance
which the people of Nigeria yearn for. Thus, corruption has made things very stressful and
difficult and the reality of good governance a mirage. Dramatic abuse of office, injustice,
embezzlement, nepotism, inequality and lack of basic needs of the people have been the order of
the day as a result of corruption that has plagued the Nigerian governance structure and system.
This work thus attempts to look at Corruption and Democratic Governance in Nigeria with Njaba
Local Government Area of Imo state as our case study from years 2006-2010. It also examines
the causes of corruption, the typology and further recommends ways of fighting the scourge to
enhance democratic governance in the local government.
