The commissioner advised school authorities and parents to help motivate students to prepare very well for the forthcoming examinations rather than look forward to a system that aids and abets cheating.

“Secret invigilators and intelligence officers will be everywhere to ensure compliance. Not only that, anti-corruption agencies would also be moving around without notice.

“Anybody caught aiding and abetting examination malpractice or involved in any form of sharp practices will be punished according to the law of the land,” she added.

According to her, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq had to pay N30.5m penalties exacted on the state following WAEC’s blacklist of 165 Kwara schools over uncontrolled examination malpractices in 2019, a behavior that the governor would no longer tolerate under his watch.

“The break occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic will not be an excuse to allow students cheat during the forthcoming examinations,” the Commissioner declared.

She announced that Junior Secondary School class three students would resume on Monday ahead of their examinations in September.

State president of ANCOPSS, Toyin Abdullahi, said the body would not be a party to examination malpractices and directed its members not to stay in their respective schools during the examinations.

Dr Adetunji Abdulrahman, President of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, described the examination malpractices that happened last year as “embarrassing.”
