INVESTIGATION INTO THE INFLUENCES OF THE ISSUES OF GOVERNANCE FAILURE, CORRUPTION AND VIOLENCE, ON THE CHALLENGES OF THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT OF NIGERIA

Abstract

As a follow-up to an earlier paper on the natural environment of Nigeria, in which a large number of challenges are highlighted for this natural environment, this investigation is conducted, to find out the extent to which issues of governance failure, corruption and violence, are implicated in these challenges. The investigation reveals that the three important issues are implicated in the challenges to a great extent. A large number of other issues are also implicated, to a relatively smaller extent. Prominent among these issues are those of ineffective laws, poor implementation of the laws, ignorance among the people, lack of environmental education and appropriate environmental ethics. Other issues that are also implicated include the culture of impunity among the people, inadequate political will by people in government, inadequate monitoring and surveillance of this natural environment. The paper recommends an aggressive mission to reform governance in Nigeria and the need to curb corruption and violence, which are also taking their toll on the natural environment of the country
