•Teacher ‘wrote exams for student’

 

The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) yesterday said it has uncovered how some principals and teachers aided examination malpractices during the just-concluded May/June General Certificate Examination (GCE) and West Africa School Certificate (WASC) Examinations.

They said such principals and teachers in some states were charging between N25, 000 and N50, 000 to indulge in malpractices.

The commission, which made the discovery through its National Anti-Corruption Volunteer Corps (NAVC), claimed the practice was more noticeable in Ondo State .

It cited the case of a school in Ondo State where a male teacher impersonated a female student to write examinations for the young girl.

The ICPC, in a statement by its Resident Media Consultant, Mr. Folu Olamiti, said the malpractices was perpetrated at special centres created by some principals.

It called for more vigilance on the path of Federal and State governments on special centers usually created for GCE and WASCE May/June examinations.

It added that such centers were being used to perpetrate mind- blowing malpractices.

The statement said: “The NAVC made the observation in a comprehensive report it made after monitoring the just concluded May/June examinations for secondary school students, stating that principals and teachers have been colluding with lazy students who had perfected the art of cheating during examinations after collecting some bribes.

 “Members of  NAVC in Ondo State which reported that its findings from  monitoring the last WASCE in the state noted that teachers and school principals usually collect the sum of up to N25,000 and N50,000 per students to sit for exams in the special centers.

 “The NAVC said it made the observations during the period of the last examination which covered both public and private secondary schools in all the eighteen (18) local government council of Ondo State.

 “In its comprehensive report, the NAVC said, ‘In our observation we discovered that most private schools were involved in examination malpractices in all area covered. There were cases where Principal of a certain school collaborated with their teachers to perpetrate this heinous crime which is deadly to the posterity of this nation.

“Some of these private schools have special rooms or offices where this crime is perfectly committed. They also allow their students to come into the examination halls with textbooks, cell phone, micro-scripts, photocopied answers (The photocopies are with us).

“Some of the proprietors, proprietresses and principals these schools boasted to our officers that we should go to the ministry of education and that we would meet them there.

“Most Public School obliged and complied with examination rules and regulations, whereas some never did. There was a particular school where one Mr. Olaoye Enoch with phone number 0803527735 was caught impersonating a female candidate, in person of Musowo Funmilayo Aina with WASSEC number 4291636/163.

“The said Mr. Olaoye Enoch is a teacher in the same School. Photograph and other relevant exhibits are available as proof of evidence. ”

Can you see why the standard of education is ever on the downward trend?  Can you also see why some school leavers and graduates cannot make a simple correct sentence in English?  A lot of them who parade various degrees cannot defend them because they were aided and abetted by teachers/lecturers to get them.  It is an abomination that a teacher will now reduce himself so low to the extent of writing exams for the students.  ICPC should as a matter of fact prosecute the culprits and also ensure that the so called special centre is closed down.  It is a great dishonour to our educational system.
too bad. It shows how 'GOOD' our education standard is. This trend has been happening for some time now and is good that finally, somebody has been caught in the act. Lets hope it will serve as a detriment to those who have and who intend to induldge in the act.

The culprits should not be spared.  Let us try to rebuild the glory of the good old days, when graduates from Nigerian Universities will held in high esteem.
