The phenomenon of corruption within the Nigerian state forms the core of the analytical focus of this book. It principally focuses on the corrosive effects of corruption and its hydra-headedness within the Nigerian political space. Relevant examples from other parts of the African Continent particularly on the political despots who literarily converted their countries to their private properties were cited. The concepts of accountability and transparency as antidotes to corruption form part of the analytical consideration of this book particularly in terms of how they have both been successfully evoked or used to tackle the rampaging menace of corruption in most polities of the world with the prescription that the same thing can be done within the Nigerian political landscape. The book clearly posits that the only route for sustainable socio-political and economic development in Nigeria is a corruption-free existence which can only be attained through a committed struggle for transparent and accountable policy process.
