LAP Lambert Academic Publishing The crippling and corrosive effects of corruption on the welfare and security of the citizens have gained unprecendented recognition across the globe. Social and political discourses in Nigeria, both at the local and national level, have been centred virtually on the unethical practices that have dominated the public service. The particular concern today is the urgent and imperative need to promote the performance of government through emphasis on accountability, transparency, and strict observance of ethical principles. In this manner, this book seeks to bring to the fore the need for properly organised and managed public service which is sine qua non to social and economic stability of the state.
