Benue: I’ll end corruption in education sector – Gov Alia

Benue State Governor, Hyacinth Alia has vowed to end corruption in the state’s education sector.

Alia made this vow at a public lecture and book launch organized by Dr Terna Francis, the Director General, Benue State Education Quality Assurance Agency.

The event had the theme ”Nigeria: 25 Years of Uninterrupted Democracy”.

According to the governor, his administration was committed to addressing all forms of corruption in the education sector and upgrading the sector to global standards.

He further stated that combating corruption required more than mere statements, lamenting that the menace had permeated from families into the wider society.

Alia, however, called for attitudinal change in order to achieve significant progress in the ongoing fight against corruption in the country.

“Change must begin with all of us; let us be the mirror of what we anticipate.

”When we talk of moral corruption at the national level, we should remember that it starts right from the primary school to homes, associations, the streets.

”But we will start somewhere, and the starting point will be the education sector,” he said.
