These are no other things than the war against indiscipline, political crisis, and economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC) have been employed and adopted by past regime and administrations to curb the evil practices, but all proved abortive, while the economic recession is on the increase. How long should this continue?

According to a statement in the Daily Times (1999), “decades after decades, children are born to see and learn of this enemy of development, why should we allow this to continue? We need to join hands on this criminal behaviours in other to protect present and future generations of our great country. Corruption has really been the bane of this country. All hands must be on deck. Osisioma (1999) Nigeria was grouped as the second position and the sixth position of the world most corrupt countries. The sequence of the position above shows little improvement which is not significant for stopping the worry of patriotic Nigerians on the matter. The Instinet for corruption normally begins with ungratefulness and greediness. As stated by Malick (1994) the origin of corruption is that it is influenced by the quest for more material wealth.

It is also expected that the goals is due to an array of problems. Of these problems, the fabrics of our economy and the need to manage it. Existing government will learn from the experiences of past leaders who have failed in their efforts to curb the menace of this underhand practices by govern leap services, for implementation of measures.
