Abstract

In relation to the concept of governance as defined by the World Bank, this article reviews the mistakes and lessons learned from Nigeria's attempt at economic development over the final three or four decades of the 20th century. Special attention is given to the adverse impact of the several exogenous oil boom shocks including resultant economic growth and distributive effects.
