A Search for Solution to Corruption in Tertiary Institutions in Delta State of Nigeria

Daniel D. Whawo, Ph.D.

Abstract

This study was undertaken to extract from staff and students in tertiary institutions strategies that
they considered important in providing solution to corruption in their institutions; they had in an earlier study
revealed several corrupt practices and their adverse effects on higher education in Delta State of Nigeria.
A validated open-ended questionnaire which was used at the secondary school level with success was adopted
in this investigation. It was administered on the randomly chosen respondent (staff and students) from the
University and all the Polytechnics and Colleges of Education in Delta State.
Available information indicated that good exemplary leadership tops their opinions. It was also opined that
good leadership and a display of excellent behaviour and hard work should be adequately rewarded.
Enlightenment of staff and students on the evils of corruption, through monitoring and supervision processes by
auditors and anti-corruption committees were also suggested. Severe punishment, possibly by imprisonment,
dismissal and forfeiture of acquired assets to Government, were also proposed.
