Education and Culture Minister Mohammad Nuh has urged the country’s educated-classes to set an example by being free from corruption.

“For the educated people out there, please don’t be involved in corruption. You pursue such a high education and you still want to be corrupt?” Nuh said on Wednesday, after a meeting on gas supply at the Economic Affairs Ministry, as quoted by kompas.com.

“It’s inappropriate, especially for educated people.”

On Monday, House Speaker Marzuki Alie said in a discussion at the University of Indonesia (UI) that most people involved in corruption are either alumni of UI or Gadjah Mada University.

The controversial statement was criticized by alumni, who said they were offended.

Nuh agreed that corruption had penetrated the educated community, but refused to comment on the controversial statement.

“The point is for all of us steer clear of corruption,” Nuh said.
