      The present almost unconscionable exhibition of crass corruption at the very highest level of government even in the midst of a devastating insurgency and national emergency shows how deep the cankerworm of corruption had eaten into the moral and ethical fabric of the country. The immediate civilian regime after independence did not last long. Abacha and his loyalists again used the state as an instrument of personal gain. This turned out to be a serious miscalculation that forced him out of power in Augustand an Interim National Government ING was instituted, led by Yoruba businessman Ernest Shonekan.

      At the Federal level, there has been two issues as to how the government could have managed our abundant and the quest for good governance in Nigeria book inflow from petroleum instead of setting out on the spending spree as we did. In the meantime, the trade unions, noticing this apparent morass at the governmental level, would go on strike at the slightest provocation and expect to be paid for days their members were not working, clearly in contravention of the trade union law and practice which required that the union pay their members when they go on strike. All that now remains for me to do is again to thank Kabiyesi, Oba Sikiru Adetona, Ogbagba II, the Awujale of Ijebuland for the honour of nominating me to deliver this lecture and to express my deep appreciation to the Board of Trustees of the Endowment Fund for the Oba Sikiru Adetona Professorial Chair in Governance for accepting the nomination. The public, however, demanded an end to military rule. Consequently, not only corruption is ravaging the country, disparity in income is also subversive of national security.

      It was a response to long-standing agitation for a more equitable federation in which no one state would be so big as to bend the will of the federation to itself. Because of this intrusion on their way of life, their future was altered dramatically. They were independent and separated from each other by uncultivated land. Ibrahim Babangida assumed power following a bloodless coup in August

It was a response to long-standing agitation for a more equitable federation in which no one state would be so big as to bend the will of the federation to itself. Democracy is abusedgood governance becomes elusive and evasive.

The system required that policies and programmes derive essentially but not exclusively from the Political class so as to provide a focused, consistent and decisive strategy for national development and security with the Legislature having principally an oversight function to ensure transparency and accountability on military class part of the Executive, apart from passing the budget for implementing the policies and programmes.

Thus, Mou is sounding like a prophet. The system political class of an Executive President elected by all of the electorate in the nation and has powers over defined areas of government such as Foreign AffairsDefence and Security whilst having a Legislature from amongst the majority party of which a Prime Minister and Ministers are chosen, whose performance is constantly under the direct scrutiny of the Legislature.

And the quest for good governance in Nigeria book that extent, the proponents of a so-called sovereign national conference do have a strong and valid point. Contrary to government expectation, however, the election was held on schedule, and it was free, fair, and peaceful.

A protocol should then be developed to enable States that cannot meet this viability criteria to be prepared to merge with a neighbouring State.

As urban centres grow in size and result in the merging of smaller distinct urban entities, metropolitan authorities are established with even greater ability to source for capital for more sophisticated infrastructure such as light railways, large water supply schemes and power supply systems as well as more diffused suburban development.

The largely historical legal study focuses on four objectives to wit: to examine the laws decrees and edicts which defined the limits of press freedom during military rule in Nigeria; to draw together in one document the pertinent Nigerian case law in the area of press freedom during military rule; to identify and analyze the institutional, legal and non-legal measures and mechanisms utilized by Nigerian military regimes in controlling the press; and to identify and analyze the socio-political factors that influenced or affected press freedom during military rule in Nigeria.

Chief Abiola won, but Babangida annulled the results before they became official. Considering the monumental mismanagement of not only the colossal oil revenues which had gone into the coffers of federal and state governments, and the fact that the entire national economy itself has for some time now been in dire straits, perhaps Nigeria for a change should depart from the present over centralised quasi-command economy, albeit of the hue of a market economy.

Since the resources being shared is largely not the product of the tax revenue from the labour of the citizens, there was no compunction or moral restraint in misappropriating or stealing significant part of it.

In a unitary state, ownership of resources is oftentimes a national state matter. Such capacity is made possible because the citizens are involved in the decision-making about such development and can see it as it progresses.

More than this, the capacity of political parties to choose from among their member-legislators both serving and shadow Ministers fosters greater party discipline and ensures greater loyalty, attention and commitment of party members to the implementation of the party manifesto and programmes.

When the Kano State Government during the first coming of Alhaji Kwankwaso attempted to establish such an authority for the orderly planning and development of the extensive urbanized Kano, the local governments protested that he was circumscribing their authority and resources.

He also argues that it is only after political, social and ideological reforms have taken place that national security, democracy and true federalism will become internalised by the Nigerian people.

Corruption also exacerbates instability, as public servants engage in primitive accumulation of capital for their private benefit. Indeed, as already indicated, it allowed the regions where such resources were found to keep 50 per cent of the royalties and rent whilst 30 per cent went to the distributable pool to be shared among the regions whilst only 20 per cent accrued to the Federal Government.
