Corruption simply put, is dishonest or illegal behavior, especially of people in authority. It is the act or effect of making somebody change from moral to immoral standards of behavior.Corruption is widely seen today in the various work places like: Universities, Schools, Police Stations, Hospitals, Industries, Market places, Churches, Organizations etc. Even in our various families, we experience corrupt practices of various kinds.
Today in the various work places, you see people willing to use their power to do dishonest or illegal things in return for money or to get an advantage, this is corruption.
Forexample our universities today are full of nothing to write home about, because they are all full of illegal and corrupt practices. It is in the university that you see a corrupt Lecturer having sex with a female student in return for marks. Some collect huge amount of cash to give their students unmerited grade A or B. while others make it very compulsory for their students to buy their Handouts and Textbooks if they intend to pass their course; what a corrupt practices!!
In the secondary Schools, you see corrupt teachers collecting money from students to pass them in exams. Is it in some homes where you see corrupt fathers putting their own daughter in a family way? The hospitals are not left out, you see some corrupt Doctors and Nurses exchanging people’s baby for money. What about our Police Stations, where drivers cannot cross until they give bribe to the Police Man on duty.
Our market places is also filled up with corrupt people who sale fake products for the price of originals. Just to mention but few corrupt practices in the work places. These are the reasons why the Imo State Anti-Corruption Corps (IMSAC),is saying that, “Corruption MUST STOP!!”
