To produce high-quality graduates, we need to tackle corruption in tertiary institutions -stakeholders

Aisha Uba Ali, Abuja:   To tackle corruption in tertiary institutions, stakeholders have been challenged to take a holistic approach in addressing it, because of its multi-dimensional nature.

Analysing  corruption  situations in Nigerian universities  on NTA’s  good morning Nigeria programme ,  guests  said there is need to prioritise academic value , ensure the  competence of appointees and  sponge plagiarism  in the system .

A learning environment expected to provide morally and academically sound graduates  who will be good ambassadors  of the society is the university,  but speakers on GMN said this has not been the situation  taking cognizance  of different forms of corruption taking place in  Nigerian  universities .

With over hundred universities across the nation, surprisingly enough none is free of one form of corruption or the other.

Speakers on the Programme advocate reward and punishment as a way of preventing corruption.

The guests also commended the five-year term for vice chancellors and encourage the need to form a coalition against corruption in Nigerian universities.

The consensus of speakers is that  tackling corruption in universities will in turn, produce high-quality graduates to meet global standard.
