The Nigerian society has been engulf in all sort of corrupt practices. Religious bodies have come out to appeal to the conscience of the masses to minimize the rate of such ills that has plagued the society for a long time.
From the educational sector, there are many missionary schools at all levels of education in Nigeria all aspiring to mold their students with the right morale attitudes but, these students have become more corrupt than their counterparts in public schools.
From a first hand experience, a principal of a missionary girls secondary school who happens to be a catholic nun organizes examination mal-practice in eternal examination for her students. Bearing in mind that the students in question are girls, when they get to higher institution your guess is as good as mine.

Still in the same school the students practice lesbianism because it's a boarding school, while some male teachers befriend the students to the extent of having a fore play in the chemistry lab. But, the "funny" part of it is that, the principal will not make any comment because some of the students involved in these immoral acts, their parents are well to do and always splashing cash on the principal so, she prefer the cash to the moral upbringing of the students under her care.
So, how can we have a moral balanced youths in the society when the church has become an arrow head in corruption and moral decadence.
This is just a tip of the iceberg of my experience with a missionary school.
