Nigeria has been progressing on administrative burden in the past decade, although it still has a lot to do on fiscal transparency and regulatory quality. Constrained by a poor security situation and an ethnic patronage structure, the country has not struggling with corruption: most of its citizens appreciate the efforts of the government, despite its limited impact so far. Nigeria needs full transparency of expenditures, property, procurement and proceeds of natural resources, as well as drawing more on social accountability for audits of public projects. However, the number of enlightened citizens is still small and insufficient progress was made on e-government and e-participation.
