Keywords:Accountability, Democratic, Governance, Management, Public Sector.
Lack of accountability in the management of the public sector in Nigeria has remained a critical issue especially since 1999 when democratic rule was reestablished in the country after a long period of military rule. Due to poor culture of accountability, corruption has become endemic in the country. Adopting the descriptive - contextual analysis method, this paper examined the perennial problem of poor culture of public accountability in Nigeria. The paper addresses the challenge of how best to ensure that public officials are held accountable for their actions and even inactions. To this end, specific suggestions for further promoting public accountability in Nigeria were advanced.
