The Vice-Chancellor, Igbinedon University, Delta State, Professor Eghosa Osaghae, has decried the high level of corruption and other vices confronting Nigeria as a nation.
Osaghae was the guest lecturer at the Distinguished Personality Lecture series special edition in honour of Emeritus Professor Bayo Adekanye, organised by the Department of Political Science and Public Administration, Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State, last week.
The professor of Political Science, who spoke on the theme: ‘Political Scientists and the Governance Process in Nigeria”, said that the country’s brand of corruption had left many countries of the world in shock.
He noted that many countries of the world thathad thought Nigeria was immune to corruption, nepotism, dictatorship among many other vices some years back, were in deep shock about the degree of corruption and other issues in the country.
Osaghae said, “The Nigerian brand of corruption is unparalleled anywhere else in the world. People cannot even begin to learn from us but they are in shock about the degree of corruption in the country. The kind of things that come out of our country is more than shocking.”
The university lecturer called on experts in various fields, especially in the art of governance, to proffer solutions to myriad of problems confronting the country.
He, however, lamented that the nation’s leadership does not respect the contributions of experts, especially political scientists, in solving political problems
“In Nigeria, there is very little respect for expertise. For political scientists, it is double jeopardy. We have a society that is very pre-illiterate. We have a society that does not have respect for the contributions of expert.”
Speaking earlier, the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Kayode Makinde, described the honouree as a personality of many parts ,who had contributed his quota to the development of Nigeria through the field of political science.
