Nigeria should enlist Foreign help to Rebuild Anti-Corruption Institutions

Despite commendable successes such as Nigeria’s surge up the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business ranking, its citizens are disillusioned with the President Buhari-led government and its unfulfilled promise of change and a stalling anti-corruption war. The country will emerge as the third most populous country in the world by 2050. Experts predict its youth bulge will yield dividends or become a risk. The quality of Nigeria’s governance will determine how well it navigates risks and leverage opportunities. Key to this is a radically new tack on corruption and a reset in leadership.
