Stakeholders seek end to corruption in schools

News » Politics


Participants at the National Conference on Transparency, Accountability and Ethical Values in Tertiary Institutions have raised the alarm that tertiary institutions in the country are “acquiring worrisome image for corrupt practices.”

Academic institutions, they said, should be famous for groundbreaking research.

They also urged political and education leaders to tackle all manner of corruption in schools in the country.

They were in Abuja last week for a conference convened by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, and the Office of the Special Adviser to the President on Ethics and Values.

The ICPC Chairman, Ekpo Nta; Chairman, TETFUND, Dr. Musa Babayo; and Presidential Adviser on Ethics and Values, Dr. Sarah Jibril, signed the communiqué obtained by our correspondent on Sunday.

Participants from the universities, polytechnics and colleges of education noted that there was an urgent need for strong commitment by leaders to check corruption in the school system.

“The existence of various forms of corruption is a serious blot on the national tertiary education landscape and constitutes a great obstacle to the attainment of the strategic objectives of the Nigerian tertiary education system as a whole,” it adds.
