Creator Zarewa, G. A.
 
Description Ineffective governance has been identified as one of the major challenges confronting successful delivery of Multifarious Infrastructure Projects’ (MIPs) and other projects. This study appraised current approaches to governance of MIPs’ delivery in Nigeria with the aim of identifying and proffering solutions to governance challenges the projects encounter. The study was conducted through literature review and semi-structured interviews with key role players who participated in the governance of eight out of thirty - five MIPs at different locations in the country followed by thematic data analysis. The study discovered that governance of MIPs’ delivery in Nigeria was done haphazardly.Two of the studied MIPs failed due to their intuitive initiation on the basis of political exigencies,tying theirfunding to erratic sources of funds andunwarranted scope changeswhile another MIP failed due change of government.Protests by some stakeholders; delayed decisions; political considerations and alleged corruptionin the award of contracts; bankruptcy of a contractor;refusal of members of a host community of an MIP to allow the MIP to take off unless they were settled; conflict between some role players and so forthaffected the delivery of other five MIPs.The study concluded that MIPs’ governance as practiced in Nigeria today does not support effective delivery of the projects and recommends the development and effective implementation of a uniformly accepted governance framework to guide MIP’s governance.
