The paper addresses the issues relating to Nigerian politics and the crisis of accountability which has become all pervading. The political terrain has been polluted and the general picture is that it is now a terrain for quick ascendancy to power andprivileges and not a means of service. Service component of politics in Nigeria has been relegated to the background. The paper also examined the genesis of political recklessness in Nigeria with its attendant manifestations. It also x-rayed the dimensions of accountability. The issue of corruption was identified as the strongest display of lack of accountability in Nigerian politics.
