Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has called for action against examination malpractice, emphasizing the need for the Nigeria National Committee (NNC) of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to address this issue. During the 61st annual meeting of the NNC of WAEC, Governor Sule stated that examination malpractice poses a threat to the education system and the future of children and the country as a whole. He stressed the importance of prompt and effective measures to combat this problem, as education is crucial for socio-economic development.
Governor Sule commended WAEC for its commitment to promoting quality education and regional cooperation among English-speaking countries. He assured that his government would create a conducive environment for learning and encouraged parents to actively participate in their children’s educational development.
To address examination malpractice, stringent security measures should be implemented, ethical conduct should be promoted, and strict penalties should be imposed on offenders. Collaboration with law enforcement agencies, the use of technology, continuous monitoring and evaluation, and collaboration with educational institutions and parents are also crucial in combating this issue. By taking these measures, WAEC can reduce the prevalence of examination malpractice and uphold the integrity of the education sector.
