EDUCATIONAL CORRUPTION IN TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS IN NIGERIA: IMPLICATIONS FOR GLOBAL PEACE, DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Today, our tertiary institutions which include Universities, Polytechnics, Monotechnics, Schools of Nursing and Health Technologies, Nigerian Defence Academy, and Colleges of Education appear not to be functioning effectively. There are cases of students being exploited by staff; recruitment and promotion of staff being based on political patronage instead of merit. There are cases of abuse of office by those in authority. Other vices include: admission racketeering, hostel profiteering, sorting, examination malpractice, sexual harassment, etc.
