While speaking with Punch yesterday, Demianus Ojijeogu, head, Public Affairs, WAEC, revealed that two secondary schools in Imo state have been barred from registering as examination centres for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and also been barred from presenting their pupils as candidates in any of its examinations for a period of five years but declined to name the affected schools.
Ojijeogu, who revealed that a supervisor was assaulted in one of the Imo schools while WAEC officials were “locked out for more than 30 minutes in the second school obviously to perpetrate examination malpractice”, said:
The Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) of the WAEC recently approved recommended sanctions for cases of exam malpractice.
A communique was issued to this effect at the end of the 62nd meeting of NEC WAEC held in Lagos.
