Abstract:

This study discusses issues bordering on corruption, corrupt practices and monitory rights as articulated in the above play. This shall be achieved through the careful appraisal of the conflicts in The Gods and the Scavengers, with particular attention to some specific characters and or group of characters, as representation of the factors that engender the malaise in society. This is to determine how the character traits of the said individuals or groups uphold the moral values of a normal society, or deter it, especially in a democratic dispensation, as could be ascribed to the Nigerian environment of today. The hypocrisy of the leading characters, which can be equated to the characteristics of our leaders in Nigeria, shall be carefully exposed. Their pronouncements and subsequent contrary actions capable of undermining a sane society and misdirecting, as well as misrepresenting ideals of democracy shall be pinpointed and appraised. This is to expose the level of violation constituted by such opprobrious conduct and or disposition. Attention shall equally be paid to the activities of individual and or groups that undermine peaceful co-existence and promote divisions to the retirement of national unity. Individuals and groups whose actions are commendable and could serve as models shall likewise be evaluated. Finally the usual twist of resorting to ascribing our failures as a nation to act of the Gods shall be examined with the aim to re-orientate our minds to accepting responsibility for our actions or in-action.
