Abstract

This study critiques the appreciable lack of development in Nigeria and attributes it to the corruption and ineptitude of the country's postindependence rulers. It proposes to remedy the pervasiveness of corruption by incorporating insights from the theory of public choice into the design and execution of new corruption cleanup programs. Such insights include the emplacement of new and more germane rules, reform of existing laws and institutions, provision of more effective and relevant incentive structures, and establishment of enforcement mechanisms to reduce the profitability of postconstitutional opportunism.
