Security Funding, Accountability and Internal Security Management in Nigeria
The thesis view of the study is that although more resources have been allocated for security in Nigeria, Tthe country has not attained security commensurate to funds disbursed . This is due largely to lack of transparency and accountability in the process of disbursement and utilisation of security funds in Nigeria. The chapter ends with a recommendation that the channels of disbursement and utilisation of security funds in Nigeria be reviewed and transparency and accountability be incorporated into it for effective utilisation.
