The governor noted his administration’s commitment to addressing all forms of corruption in the education sector and upgrading the sector to global standards.

The governor, however, called for attitudinal change in order to achieve significant progress in the ongoing fight against corruption in the country.

The event had the theme ”Nigeria: 25 Years of Uninterrupted Democracy”, while the book is titled ”Moral Philosophy and Character Formation: Nigeria Under the Lens” and “Civic Education and National Values”.

Speaking earlier, Prof Aloysius Ihuah, the book reviewer, and National President of the Association of Physiology Practitioners in Nigeria, commended the author for promoting national ethics.

According to Ihuah, the book provided a good account of moral issues in need of national debate in a depressed nation like Nigeria.

He added that the author took a critical examination of the many wrongs of the Nigerian state, particularly character deficit with its accompanying socio-economic baggage.

“The book argues that something morally significant is missing in the Nigerian character.

”That there is every need to advance a pragmatic solution in an effort to foist a national ethic that establishes a culture of wholeness, humanness and hospitality of humanity.
