CORRUPTION AND NATIONAL SECURITY: THE MILITARY CAMPAIGN AGAINST BOKO HARAM INSURGENCY IN NIGERIA
There is enough evidence to believe that the military campaign against Boko Haram Insurgency in Nigeria has lasted so long as a result of corruption. This study examined the extent to which the cankerworm has affected military operations which the current Head of State promised to execute within a very short time, so much that it is taking several years. Data was obtained from secondary materials which include – books, journals, periodicals, newspapers, the internet, etc. Data analysis was done by the technique of content analysis while the economic paradigm of corruption, Vannucci (2015), was adopted as the theoretical framework of the study. Findings revealed that the ght against Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria has lasted so long due to corruption that has eaten deep into the fabrics of the military hierarchy. It was therefore, suggested in the paper that the military hierarchy be sanitized by ushing out all culprits to ensure that every kobo released for the campaign is efciently utilized for the very purpose for which it is meant.
