Nigeria gained independence in 1960 from Britain. The political elite who inherited political power have since found that corruption, bad governance and poor leadership only result in underdevelopment and political instability. Corruption and bad governance in the era of military rule has been so bad that the civilian government of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo (1999 to 2007) attempts to control corruption and demonstrate good leadership has not yielded much desired results. We examine the effect of corruption on governance and leadership in nation building and the instrumentality by which the Obasanjo’s government has being trying to curb or eradicate corruption and install good governance/leadership in Nigeria since the return to civil rule
