ABSTRACT This paper examines the concept of constitutional democracy and its operation within the context of Nigeria’s political terrain. While arguing that the intention of the founding fathers of our great nation in establishing a constitutional democracy was to create political and institutional mechanisms that will help to checkmate the arbitrariness inherent in government with a view to making sure that power is used for the good of society, it observes that our present-day rulers and other political leaders have turned our government into a regime of personal rule where persons take precedence over rules. Furthermore, it notes that although in principle constitutionalism has a strong relationship with the notion of a democratic government, they are nevertheless two distinct concepts. This is even as a government may be constitutional but not democratic, or democratic and yet not constitutional. The paper observes that the idea of a democratic government is used to portray the idea of a government built upon the consent of the governed obtained freely from them via the instrumentality of periodic elections. It also notes that even though Nigeria has abstract constitution and institutions which are indeed some of the hallmarks of a constitutional government, her problem remains that these formal rules of political and institutional game hardly govern the conduct of her rulers and other political leaders in the course of their political actions and decisions. Such a development, the paper contends, portends some ugly political and economic implications. Politically, it denotes the absence of the rule of law, lack of development, and an invitation to anarchy. In the economic sphere, it discourages foreign investment and therefore, leads to huge economic loss. The paper finally concludes by observing that Nigeria must be both constitutional and democratic for her to really pass for a genuine constitutional democracy. This it can only achieve by strictly and religiously adhering to the hallowed tenets of constitutionalism and democratic governance.
