Abstract

Urbanization, as a global phenomenon, has radically transformed modern societies. It has been accelerated by the growth of industrialism and capitalism with attendant consequences for governance and human survival. This paper examines the impact of urbanization all the dynamics of Nigerian politics and the consequences for governance. The assertion is that ill the Nigerian context, urban growth has outstripped economic growth with grave implications for politics and politicking. II is suggested that the development of a good governance compact and the institutionalization of democracy remain the surest means of resolving the crisis of urban governance in Nigeria.
Keywords: Urban governance, good governance, urban politics, corruption and democracy
