This book establishes that legislating is not only the process of law making but encompasses the characteristics of the legislature as a whole. The role legislation plays in the quest for economic prosperity in Nigeria is buttressed as well as the role of the executive in the quest for good governance. The need for a rigorous and deliberative approach as the basis of public policy is canvassed. The book explores political governance by stating the need for legislations that could propel the introduction and use of party ideology to achieve good governance in Nigeria. It also examines the relationship between Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and good political governance through the use of credible, free and fair elections to appoint leaders in a democratic system of government.
