In: A paper  presented at the Conference on the Dilemmas of Democracy  in Nigeria, University of Wisconsin- Madison; The African Studies Preogramme, 205 Ingram Hall, University of Wisconsin- Madison, Madison. 1995. November 10-13.

Abstract: This paper describes the course of economic policy in Nigeria from 1985 to 1996, with special attention to the politics of reforms. It summaries the cultural trends and structural changes in Nigeria’s political economy during this period and also offers an account of the changing nature of political domination with an analysis of its implications for the economy. The paper devotes a section to discuss the Babangida regime and the Structural Adjustment Programme. It discusses how Buhari’s dictatorial style, set against chronic economic stagnation, lost legitimacy and paved the way for a more purposeful President Babangida who on assumption of power introduced several economic measures to arrest the downward spiral of the nation’s  economy. The paper further discusses the unsteady path of reforms, the political management of the adjustment, the transition crisis and the collapse of the adjustment and the emergence of predatory rule. In conclusion, the paper appreciates the initial success of the economic reforms of president Babangida which later collapsed as a result of unprecedented corruption, including large scale diversion of oil stock and revenues, systematic commercial fraud and intensified drug trafficking.
