Leadership practices influence the education system in any society. Integrity being a core value in leadership has a great effect on educational issues that influence people and their environmental interactions. The study examined influence of leadership integrity on provision of holistic training on student-teachers in public Primary Teachers Training Colleges (PTTCs).The study adopted a mixed methodology and an explanatory design. Out of a target population of 2061 participants, a sample size of 633 respondents ( 30% of two groups -student-teachers and lecturers and a total of 21 respondents of other groups drawn from the offices as whole independent units: principals, Deputy principals, BOM chairmen, Deans and the student-leaders) participated in the study. The study revealed that there is indeed lack of leadership integrity on provision of holistic training on student-teachers in the public PTTCs leading to the lack of inculcation of transparency and accountability skills into the graduates. This led to reduced ethics and poor performance on duty performances of the teacher-students. The study therefore recommended that the student-teachers be trained as teachers of integrity who would prepare pupils in the primary schools as conscious and cohesive national citizens capable of facing global challenges courageously.
