Accordingly, Wole Soyinka in this novel under investigation The Road, he says Nigerian leaders lack transparency. For instance, in government it is when an elected representative makes decisions that are influenced by vested interest ever than legitimate or established government has well as party regulations.

However, on the order hand, Ola Rotimi uses an ex-military officer named, Lejoka-Brown to portray the attitude of Nigerian leaders and how corrupt they are. He further asserts that, Lejoka-Brown is an ex-military officer who is so corrupt to the extent that he has taken to dabbling in politics so that he can partake in the national chin-chin.

Moreover, instead he relied on his military tactics and moreover to conduct his surprise and attack campaign. Consequently, it is on this note that the research work intends to research on the theme of corruption in Wole Soyinka’s The Road and Ola Rotimi’s Our Husband Has Gone Mad Again.

Conclusion

Without a doubt, corruption practices among our political leaders have resulted in undermining the growth and stability of our country Nigeria. Consequently, Rotimi and Soyinka have being able to examine how the Nigeria society has simply been lacking in one thing that every nation, big or small, needs to archive greatness-credible, responsible and people oriented leadership.

Consequently, on this note, Chinua Achebe argued in his novel, The Trouble with Nigeria… he says” is simply and squarely a failure of leadership. Thus, he says, there is nothing wrong with the Nigerian character. Indeed, there is nothing wrong with the Nigerian land, climate, water, air, or anything else.

Specifically, the Nigerian problem is the unwillingness or the inability of its leaders to rise to their responsibility, to the challenge of personal example, which is the hallmark of true leadership’’ (1).

Therefore, based on Achebe’s point of view, the state of Nigeria’s pitiable socio-economic development as examined by critics in the review of related literature on Rotimi and Soyinka’s writings has shown direct consequences of the actions and inability of the leadership class that has managed the affairs and wealth of the country since independence.
