Kwara Govt. shuts 3 schools over exam malpractice

Date: 2017-05-12

 

The State Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, announced thi The Kwara Government has shut three schools in the state for alleged examination malpractice.

Alhaji, Musa Yeketi, the State Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, announced this to newsmen on Friday in Ilorin.

Yeketi listed their names as Topklass Secondary School, Kilanko, Ilorin, Banwo International College, Ajase-Ipo and AJVIC College, Amoyo near Ilorin.

He explained that the schools were shut because they registered external candidates for the West African Examination (WAEC) without duly informing the ministry.

According to the commissioner, the Banwo International College registered over 200 external candidates, which far outweighed its facility and the number of students in the school.

"The management of the college never consulted our ministry for approval." "Also, two other schools in Amoyo and Kilanko, registered external candidates without due consultation," the commissioner said.

He alleged that at one of the schools, the ministry discovered that while some candidates were already writing the essay part of a particular subject, others were still on the objectives.

"When we raised a question on this, the management could not give tenable explanation," he said.

Yeketi warned that the present administration would not give room for examination malpractice or non-compliance with statutory requirement in the education sector.

He recalled that some schools were closed about two months ago for failure to register or due to substandard environment. "Those schools still remained shut."

He, however, said the schools would be reopened when they fully complied with the directives of the ministry.NAN
