Abstract

In every modern society, politics is influenced tremendously by an elite class that projects the political culture which could make or mar democracy, as a result of the activities of the political parties. The adoption of western democracy is a mixed bag of blessing and catastrophes in the body politics of the country. Today it is difficult to reconcile Nigerian democracy with that of the advanced democratic countries. In Nigeria, politics is regarded as a “dirty game” which scare away many people. It has been noted that the level of socio-economic development in the country is significantly related to the nature of politics in vogue.. Political parties are primarily aimed at primitive accumulation of wealth. Hence, “the end justifies the means”. The prevailing election rigging, thuggery, bribery and corruption reflect value degeneration with the attendant instability in the country‚Äüs democracy. The purpose of this paper is to examine the nature of corruption and the roles of political parties as they affect the consolidation of democracy in Nigeria.
