Author(s): Saliu A Danladi
Abstract: This paper focused on corruption in the tertiary institutions and its effect in the implementation of curriculum in Nigeria. As a way of doing justice to the paper, it extensively discussed the concepts of corruption, corruption in curriculum implementation, challenges of curriculum implementation in Nigeria and different dimensions of corruption practices both in the tertiary institutions and Nigerian society in particular. In this paper corruption is seen generally as a condemnable behaviour and particularly identifies corruption in the tertiary institutions as a practice that has multiple capabilities for undermining the implementation of curriculum and national development of Nigeria. Therefore, solutions were given as a way out to promote greater transparency, accountability, stronger and implementable social justice measures in education by developing curricular that will sensitize citizens to rise up to kill corruption in Nigerian tertiary institutions.
