A STUDY OF CORRUPT PRACTICES IN TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS IN DELTA STATE OF NIGERIA

DANIEL D. WHAWO.

Abstract
This study was undertaken to find out if identifiable corrupt practices exist in tertiary
institutions in Nigeria and to ascertain the damage they have done to tertiary education.
Students and staff (academic and non-academic) of seven (7) tertiary institutions were
randomly chosen as respondents to a validated open-ended questionnaire. The
information obtained from them indicated that many corrupt practices are perpetuated by
staff and students and these corrupt practices have done many evils to Higher Education
in Nigeria. For instance, examination malpractices which are sustained by financial
extortion/willing offerers and illicit sexual intercourse with female students result in the
production of half-baked graduates and a lowering of academic standard.
