Abstract:Leadership problems have plagued Nigeria since national independence in 1960. The results have been massive corruption, mismanagement of natural and human resources, and the loss of over 2 million lives. Despite abundant literature on leadership and political parties, no work has critically analyzed the various party systems in the context of the Nigerian environment. The purpose of this study was to determine the ideal party system for producing effective leadership in Nigeria. The research questions focused on how the number of political parties could affect democracy and organizational leadership. The qualitative research consisted of reviewing existing electoral data, interviewing 30 leaders, and holding a focus group of 12 different leaders selected from a diverse group of Nigerian socio-political elites. Data analysis included extracting and organizing information from the different cases into a cross-case comparative format and categorizing them into common patterns and themes. The results of the study identified the lack of an effective party system and weak opposition as major contributors to leadership problems. As result, it is recommended that a balanced 2-party system, with full public funding and a truly independent electoral commission, be developed. The presence of a 2-party system could lead to a dynamic legislature, improved checks and balances, and more effective legislative leadership. Nigeria is the world's 6th largest producer of crude oil and strategically important to the continued development of Africa. Developing a vibrant system that fosters effective solutions to long-term problems could have a positive impact on the country and the African continent.
