The Ministry of Education is collaborating with anti-graft agencies and other stakeholders to curb examination malpractices in the country.
The Chairman, Exam Ethics Marshall International (EEMI), Mr Ike Onyechere stated this on Thursday in Abuja.
Mr Onyechere said that the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and other education stakeholders would soon unveil a blueprint to curb examination malpractices across board.
“Malpractices are in all facets of our lives. Corruption that has become noticeable in the society today can be traced to the corruption in examinations. Nigeria must check this trend before it tarnishes the country’s image,” he said.
Mr Onyechere explained that there would be a conference to facilitate measures aimed at combating examination malpractice and protect the integrity of education.
“The recommendations at the end of the conference will be presented to the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, for implementation,” he said.
