These respondents were both contributors to and victims of the processes of perpetration of acts of indiscipline. Overall 15 global causes of indiscipline were provided. These were accompanied with 17 global suggested solutions to the national disease of moral decadence. These solutions require the involvement and commitment of social groups, leadership, government, economic programme planners, value systems mandators and several other related groups and issues.

The suggested solutions for restoring disciplined behaviour in Nigerian organization constitute elements of this path.
