The root of corruption

29 May 2015, 18:51 Nmakwe Kingsley

The country's educational system has suffered many set backs in its quest to produce quality and independent enterprising students.As a matter of fact the best students on the certificate in the country are not the best best students in the brain,but the former have got all the accolades as grade in certificate have become a means of detecting the best students in the country.

This has led to the get good grade syndrome affecting 90 percent of Nigeria student rather than the initial zeal to acquire knowledge, Nigeria has become a camp for the dumping of corrupt and selfish lecturers who now works for their personal selfish interest rather than working for the good of the country this is why every area of d country will continue to suffer as those placed as tutors over this every day leaders only teaches them that you can be nothing in the country without corruption.

As a matter of fact we only produce 90 percent of corrupt and selfish leaders every year,as the only few who seem to stand are just about 10 percent.

We are now in an academic era where the students who study hard become adversaries to the lecturers and the opposite are always sited around them as best friends.if anybody must eliminate corruption in Nigeria it must first start from the educational system.
