Our Plans For Examination Malpractices This 2017 – WAEC

The Registrar , West African Examination
Council , Dr . Uyi Uwadiae , on Thursday said
examination malpractice undermines the
quality of manpower and academic
attainment in the sub -region . He , therefore ,
called on stakeholders to proffer solutions to
the challenge of examination fraud.
Uwadiae said this during the formal opening
ceremony of the 65 th Annual Council
Meeting of the council on Tuesday .
The Registrar lamented that examination
malpractice “ has persisted in member
countries of the council ” despite the huge
resources deployed in fighting the menace .
He said , “Existing government legislations
should be enforced or , where necessary ,
new ones promulgated against examination
fraud. Parents should desist from
encouraging or sponsoring fraud for their
wards . School authorities and teachers ’
associations should halt the era of impunity
for their staff and members who engage in
examination malpractice.
“ Religious institutions should constantly
admonish their congregations against
involvement in fraud while community leaders
should show resentment to the perpetration
of examination irregularities in their domains .
Equipping of schools and teachers ’ welfare
should receive priority attention from
governments to reduce temptation . ’’
In her address , the Council Chairperson , Dr .
Evelyn Kandakai , noted that 80 per cent of
the total candidature of the West African
Examination Council was registered in Nigeria
each year . She commended Nigeria for
sustaining the activities of the council by
fulfilling its financial commitment , calling on
other member countries to pay their backlog
of contributions and subventions . ”
