Abstract: Corruption, like money laundering, is a plague threatening development and enthronement of good governance in most developing countries, including Nigeria. Nigeria is a word that is almost synonymous with corruption, and the determined effort of the government to fight the scourge of corruption has revealed that international cooperation and support is crucial to its success. This paper explores the structuring of money laundering control as a mechanism for effective control of the corruption pandemic in Nigeria and other developing countries of the world, through enhanced international cooperation, towards the enthronement of good governance.

Keywords: money laundering control; corruption control; enhanced international cooperation; good governance; Nigeria.
