THE PERCEPTION ON PUBLIC SECTOR CORRUPTION (PSC) IN NIGERIA: AN INSIGHT FROM EXPERTS IN ANTI-CORRUPTION AGENCIES (ACA)
from the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission shared the experiences on how PSC in perceived in Nigeria. These experts are specialists and professionals in various fields of endevours. Furthermore, they are interacting with the phenomenon under investigations in in various capacity as investigators and prosecutors. Our initial aim was to gain an understanding from the perspectives of the corrupt public servants themselves. However, this proved difficult due to the secretive and complex nature of corruption. Even those found guilty of corruption and subsequently convicted, often deny the charges and hence decline speaking about it. Therefore, as the next plausible alternative, an insight from these experts was sought. Through qualitative research methodology paradigm, this study sourced data from face to face interviews with these experts. The finding indicates the perception that PSC in Nigeria is a social reality which is a multifaceted phenomenon. It is being perceived differently depending on the lens through which it is being viewed. Therefore, any meaningful remedy to the menace of corruption in the country should commence at gaining an understanding of the perception held on corruption and appropriately addressing it.
