Corruption in Nigeria

The Niger Delta Experience

edited by Christian Akani

This book documents five presentations made at a two-day conference on corruption, organised by the Institute for Academic Freedom, University of Port Harcourt in May 2000. The editor provides an overview, observing the extent to which the crisis of corruption - indivisible from the crisis of the Nigerian state and the colonial legacy - impinges upon national economic calculations; and sets out the anti-corruption and good-governance manifesto and the human rights agenda of the conference. The ensuing papers cover, and present possible solutions for: the political economy of corruption; the Nigerian state as an instrument of corruption; corruption and the challenges of development; and underdevelopment and corruption.
