Keywords:Administration, , Anti-Corruption, Economic Corruption and War
Ordinarily, the claim that the Mohammadu Buhari led Administration of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is synonymous with Anti Corruption is not out of place. This stems from the fact that even during electioneering campaign period, anti corruption was his major campaign slogan and it has continued since his eventual assumption of office on the 29th May 2015. The task of this study is to find out how far this administration has gone in achieving her pet project or otherwise. Against this backdrop, two research questions served as directional guide: are there more credible and observable effectiveness of the fight against corruption. Does the regime maintain a zero tolerance for corruption? The study employed extractive corruption theory while Ex-post facto research design was used. The data were generated through secondary sources and qualitative method of data analysis was employed. Conclusively, this study accepts that there are more credible and observable effectiveness of the fight against corruption and reveals that the regime did not maintain zero tolerance for corruption. The study therefore recommends that there should be improved coordination and cooperation among state institutions involved in the fight against corruption and the regime should be non-partisan in its fight against corruption.
