  3. Abstract:
    Corruption is no doubt a major bane to development in Nigeria and other Third World Countries. It has eaten deep into the social fabric of the country. Corruption has become unsurmountable in Nigeria despite efforts being made to tackle it. Recently, the activities of various anti-corruption agencies have created some impact which are enough to discourage corruption among public office holders yet many of them still engage in corrupt practices. This is indeed a worrisome situation. This paper therefore, examines the menace of corruption in public institutions in Nigeria with specific reference to the health sector.  It is recommended that punishments which are stiffer than the existing ones should be meted out to public officials who engage in corruption. One of such punishments is death sentence.
