Article Title: Roles of Adult Education in Minimizing Corruption in Nigeria
by I.T. Ugwoegbu

Corruption can be regarded as an illegal, immoral or dishonest behaviour. Corruption in Nigeria has reached a very high degree of prevalence. The endemic state of corruption therefore warrants concrete action by all stakeholders in the fight against it. The purpose of the study is to evolve a permanent mechanism, through which corruption could be minimized or completely wiped out in the society. The study was aimed at creating an awareness of the evils of corruption in Nigeria. Another important purpose of the study is to discuss the methods that could be used to reduce corruption through adult education. The paper therefore examines the concept and how it is carried out in the Nigerian society. It looked at the different forms of corruption in the society and went ahead to discuss the effects of corruption as it affects both individuals and the society. The paper also focuses on the causes of corruption and the roles of adult education in minimizing corruption in Nigeria. Adult education in this paper, is regarded as all forms of education provided to adults and is obtained through formal, informal and non-formal situations.
