The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, on Thursday, warned schools nationwide to “tighten the noose” on examination malpractice.
This was as he urged examiners to work closely with law enforcement agencies to “crackdown on examination malpractice”.
Adamu made the call at the 47th Session of the State House Ministerial Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
According to him, despite efforts to raise the integrity of the examination system in schools nationwide, the Ministry still grapples with malpractice perpetrated both at the exams councils and school levels.
He lauded the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board for its efforts at stemming malpractice, saying more works need to be done.
