CHAPTER ONE

1.1   INTRODUCTION

         The public sector could be described as the government arm of a country. The three tiers of government in relation to Nigeria include the federal government, the state government and the local government. Fraud and fund misuse over the year has been a threat to Nigeria economy. The need to prevent it gave birth to the financial control system. Fraud is a conscious premeditated action of a person or group of people with the intention of uttering the truth or fact for selfish personal and monetary gain” Fraud involves the use of decent and trick and sometimes highly intelligent cunning and know-how. The action takes the form of forgery, falsification of documents forging and uttering of signatures and outright. Fund misuse on its own occurs in most cases intentionally and it is thus a method of fraud perpetration in most pubic sector establishments.
