Title : Public Sector Corruption In Nigeria
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Greene I. Eleagu

Abstract: Corruption is a monster that has held Nigeria hostage for a long time. Public institutions created to effect public good or collective welfare have been turned into personal fiefdoms by the privileged few. Indeed, according to saharareporters.com (Olorunfemi,2016) there is currently an attempt by the senate to decriminalize corruption by seeking to amend the CCT Act "while the senate president is standing trial for a breach of the (same)law". As at now the bill has passed its second reading and only awaits a third at the national assembly to become law. This paper therefore is an attempt to highlight the causes, patterns and consequences of corruption in Nigeria.
