Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has urged education policy formulators to introduce corruption studies in the country’s curriculum.
Mimiko, made the call on Tuesday at a lecture organised by the Island Club, Lagos where he was the guest speaker.
The governor who bemoaned the spate of corruption in the country said, “Corruption cuts across all sectors of our national lives. If it is the major problem holding Nigeria back, then we need to understand it better so that we can fight it. Corruption studies should be inculcated into the syllabus in the university and schools.
“A high GDP is not the only measure of development.GDP can represent economic growth but it does not mean economic development. Any good governance that does not root out poverty or impact lives is not development,” he said.
