1. Teachers in our schools are generally low-grade, poorly motivated, ill-equipped for their sacred duty.

4. Cult activities blossom in the primary schools right now. All imaginable acts of hooliganism are perpetrated by young children, sometimes under the supervision of one or two shameless teachers.
5. University teachers belittle themselves before their students by selling grades for money or sex. Yet we have establishments that should check the activities of these criminal and abominable lecturers.

as Officials of the ministry of education reek of graft.
7. Parents connive with corrupt teachers at every level to buy results and certificates for their children.
8. The government is guilty of criminal negligence. They sit at ease in the government houses and luxurious offices while our future burns

    Students are no more reading, Teachers are not teaching well, Lecturers neglect their primary duties, poor funding of education, available fund are not used judiciously, students bribe their lecturers to have good grade, improper dressing among female students,
    laboratories are not well equiped, parents pay invigilators to allow their children to cut corners, students prefer facebooking and pinging to reading, students take their study with levity hands, students are not encouraged to read, Teachers and Lecturers are not well paid by the goverment……………..
    These and many others have contributed to the waning standard of educational system in Nigeria.

  11. ugwunwa momoh says:

    I hereby write to speak out the cause of the rot in our education system.
    First and foremost, the government is one of the cause: the nigeria government are only interested in making money from our educational board. Here in nigeria, before a student will find his/her self in the university, he/she must posess the following:
    What the difference btw utme and postutme?
    They are only making money in conducting the above exams.
    Now compare this kind of educational system to all other countries in the world,
    In other countries, they only need
    A high school certificate and an apptitude test for the student to be in university.
    So in a situation whereby a student sat for all these exams,passing the cutoffmark without gaining admission will fustrate him/her which will also encourage the student in seeking assistant from the lecturers and professors in form of runs.

    Secondly, the lecturers and professors have been so corupt to the extend that they give admission to student who scored below the cutoff mark just because of the money given to them by the students.
    Now it has been in the mind of most student, that even if. Pass the cutoff mark, u still need to see one or two lecturers to secure their admission..
    Mmmh, what an education system in nigeria.
    May God help us (amen)

  12. Devil is the evil of all evils. And that is why you can see majority of Nigeria student not serious and he set before them examination malpractise,unseriouness,cultisim and prostitution all because he knows there the FUTURE of tomorrow and neva let them to prosper.
    And also we can see how devil is making use of our lecturers,professors, even secondary school teachers against the rising the STAR for him to condem there carrier.
    Student are no longer serious like ever before all because they can bribe,purchase and sorthing either with their Money or their Body as the case may or by both. Worst still by godfathers or knowing people why not when the children of our rogue leaders are schoolin in the best universities oversees.
    Corruption as filled the Nation it’s a work tools of Devil used to jeopardise student carrier and lead to a wasted Life.
    Government has no choice because there the Tap Root of all educational abnormallity, it’s what thy they do themself and they can’t find solution to Exam Malpractise.
    Parent has the major role to take part in their{student} children live.
    Internet Technology also have their own bad contribution when it’s EXCESS toward jeopardisation of student Carrier.
    All you Listed has one bad contribution or the other.

  16. goodness says:

    The teachers,the school authorities and the government are all to blame.if the teachers,school authorities or the invigilators put their feet down and decide that their would be no exam malpractice that how it will be but the teachers would want make little money from the students thereby creating room for exam malpractice and also the government makes it difficult for students to gain admission into the higher institution causing students to look for alternative means.
