    Acts of Corruption in tertiary institutions. But why set up special Committies? Are there no formal institutions with the responsibility of discipling erring staff, like Senior/ Junior Staff Disciplinary Committees? We should strenghten existing Institutions instead of setting up ad hoc Committees. Please Governor Wike consider this. You could send a delegation from your state owned tertiary institutions to the University of Benin for under study.
