Corruption and Culture in Modern Societies: The Youth and Development

Kenneth Ubani


The youth are often led by what they see the adults do. His model is the environment. He can easily be led astray if he imbibes the wrong orientation which may make him ineffective in preparing and holding the future in virtue for the state. Leadership by example is one of the best ways of teaching the youth. Some youth are seen in negative character because they copy an abnormal environment. Moral education and counseling can be effective in grooming the youth only when the adults are forthright in their dealings with the society. All the social institutions should be engaged in correcting anomalies present in the the system, despite the challenges of the time so that the youth can live by such standards.
