Abstract:The Nigerian government has consistently advocated a strong partnership between the public and the private sector. In the 'Vision 2010 Report', the government outlined its aim: the private sector as the 'engine of growth' and the public sector as providing the enabling environment for this. In practice, however, the private sector is reluctant to engage in strong partnerships with public institutions due to endemic corruption in the public sector and factors such as lack of innovation and poor working attitudes. This article traces pre-independence, post-independence and recent government policies geared at promoting partnership between the private and the public sector. The author argues that, unless the deplorable state of the public sector is addressed, such partnership will remain more of a myth than a reality. Bibliogr., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
