The federal government has lauded the conduct of the ongoing 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations WASSCE, describing it as peaceful and stress-free.
Disclosing this on Monday, while monitoring the conduct of the examinations in Federal Capital Territory, FCT, the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Arc Sonny Echono said aside from the disruptions witnessed by candidates in the South-east, orchestrated by sit at home orders, the conduct of the 2021 WASSCE was peaceful.
He said, “We are very pleased that all around the country, exams are going on peacefully. We have a total of over 19,000 exams centers across the country over 1.57miillion candidates registered for their exams and beside the disruptions we had on Sept 13th in the southeast where some of our candidates were stopped from doing the exams, it is a peaceful and stressful examination.”
Reiterating the federal government’s assurance to reconsider those candidates who missed their examinations, Echono said that the examination centers are complying with all the standards and ethics of examinations.
The Permanent Secretary who disclosed that over 1.57 million candidates are currently sitting for the 2021 WASSCE, across Nigeria, also expressed satisfaction over the low level of malpractice recorded in this year’s examination exercise.
“We don’t see much of malpractices in internal examinations like this because these are students who are already in school but the only place where we have one or two cases is where examiners in private schools try to assist the students”.
Echono further disclosed that the Federal government is addressing incidences and cases of examination malpractices already recorded during Tertiary admission exams and would arrest any person found culpable.
“We are pursuing very hard more cases, incidence or possibilities of examinations malpractice we have a zero tolerance for examinations malpractice, we punish and arrest any person found culpable and ensure that immunity is restored to our system,” he said.
