Kwara State Government has warned school authorities and parents that it would not tolerate examination malpractices under any guise, saying anyone caught in the crime would be punished. The government instead urged school authorities and parents to encourage students to prepare very well for the upcoming examinations rather than look forward to a system that aids and abets cheating.
This was made known by the state Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Hajia Fatimah Ahmed, at a meeting of the All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS), proprietors of private schools and the leadership of the Nigeria Union of Teachers in Ilorin. Ahmed said: “As we all know, the examinations will start on the August 17, 2020. You should all go back home and relay this warning to all your invigilators. Secret invigilators and intelligent officers will be everywhere to ensure compliance.
