Globalization and Corruption in Nigeria

Kelly Bryan Ovie Ejumudo, Francis Ayegbunam Ikenga


Globalization has become a recognized reality despite the polemics on the usefulness and essence of the multi-dimensional phenomenon. This study which examines the nexus between globalization and corruption in Nigeria contends that while globalization has the potency and capacity of accentuating and exacerbating the occurrence and effect of corruption, the real problem of corruption in Nigeria is the structural and institutional failure of the Nigerian state manifesting at two levels: the inability to provide a responsible and accountable leadership accompanied by true citizenship participation and empowerment and the poor capacity to confront and tackle the increasing menace of corruption. This study relies on valuable secondary sources of data and adopts a qualitative method. The study concludes with some useful recommendations including institutional and trans-boundary frameworks and mechanisms as well as attitudinal re-orientation.

Keywords: Globalization, corruption, multi-dimensional dimension, Nigeria.
