The Ethical Implication of Separating Morality From Politics: Taking Cue From Machiavellian Political Ideas and The Nigerian Political Experience
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
The attention of this paper would be to assess critically the consequences of any conscious effort to separate morality from politics giving that morality constitutes an essential and integral part of any political culture. With this understanding it becomes controversial and worrisome for any one to suggest that morality can be divorced from politics and still make a success out of the entire business of governance. The concept of Machiavellianism presents a very big challenge to this possibility in politics. I would attempt to show the dangers inherent in such a calculated effort using the Nigerian political experience as a case study
