Abstract

Although different forms of corruption exist in every regions, Africa, South America, Latin America, Russia, and Asia countries, perhaps to a greater extent engage in higher levels of corruption more than other regions of the world. Applying ethics of governance and theory of “Patrimonialism”, this article examines governance of ethics and corruption. This article argues that corruption lays the foundation for the abridgement of citizens’ rights and
perpetuation of underdevelopment. Methodologically, we explored contents through multiple media sources, ensuring rigor and trustworthiness. Our findings reveal how corruption is being perpetuated in Nigeria, prosecuted and the challenges. This article finds a strong relationship between corruption, the absence of ethics of governance, and maladministration. Many public and political office holders engage or support corruption, there is lack of moral and ethical considerations. More so, it appears that politics is based on wealth acquisition, self-interest rather than on ideologies.
