Abstract:Leadership crisis has plagued Nigeria's public sector governance since independence in 1960. The problem is that failed efforts of successive Nigerian administrations, ineffective leadership and poor governance, has resulted in government instability and economic setbacks. The purpose of this study was to examine transformational leadership theory as an alternative that can lead to a positive change. During the 1950s and 1960s Nigerian public sector was regarded as one of the best in Africa, today Nigeria is ranked among the worst in the world. The research questions focused on the extent to which the role of leadership influenced the governance of the Nigerian public sector, and the relationship between corrupt leadership and poor governance. This qualitative study used secondary data from 1960 to 2007. Pattern matching technique was used to establish reoccurring themes that link data analysis to the research findings. The findings revealed themes that underpin the role of leadership in governance. The factors isolated include lack of control of corruption, and lack of rule of law, poorly articulated government policies, and implementation. It is recommended that a transformational leadership model be adopted as it has the potential to improve the quality of governance. The implications for positive social change include a departure from Nigeria's historical past of a pattern of leadership characterized by coups, counter coups, corruption, and instability. Further, positive social change can be evident when the citizens regain confidence and trust in the public sector and a fair and equitable leadership process becomes the dominant force.
