Indiscipline in Political Parties: Bane of Democratic Consolidation and Good Governance in Nigeria
Oviasuyi, Patrick Osatohanmwen
Educational Research Quarterly, v30 n1 p50-63 2006
Indiscipline in political parties is antithetic to democratic consolidation and good governance in Nigeria. This article looks at the reasons and provides examples of actions of indiscipline in political parties in Nigeria and recommends that: the party must be superior to all its members, funding of the party should never be on individualistic principles, the party constitution must be strictly adhered to; the principles of democracy should be embraced by the parties and its elders; and above all, proper party education must be given to all the members of the party. The paper concludes that urgent and prompt steps must be taken to check the ugly trends of indiscipline in political parties in Nigeria in order to prevent the truncation of the democratic process by the military as before.
