Nigeria Ranked Number One in World Examination Malpractice Index

Nigeria occupies the number one position in the world’s examination malpractice index, according to the Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr. Mike Omeri.

Omeri says that the malpractice situation in the country has led to the production of half baked graduates and collapse of the education sector.

He said this while speaking at the launch of campaign to raise integrity standard in the nation’s educational system organized by the NOA in collaboration with Exam Ethics Marshals International in Lokoja.

According to him, report on examination malpractice in the country contains very disturbing information as it puts the average annual examination malpractice index at 12 per cent.

“In May/June school certificate examination conducted by NECO, a total of 615, 010 cases of malpractice were recorded while 439,529 were recorded in the 2011 examination. The phenomenon has graduated into a highly complex and organized crime perpetuated by private and community owned schools,” he said.

Earlier, the Chief Executive Secretary of the National University Commission, Prof. Julius Okogie, said handwork, value and integrity have been eroded in the nation’s educational system, lamenting that emphasis is being placed on paper qualification instead of productivity.

Prof. Okogie, who was represented by Prof.  Nancy Abey, blamed parents and teachers for the trend. Governor Idris Wada in speech assured that he would work hard to eliminate examination malpractice in Kogi State, but pointed out that it requires concerted efforts from all stakeholders.

Iwant NOA to change their mind for blaming parent and teacher, their officials must to blame and also government becouse their are NO. 1 that offering malpractice in Nigeria by curruption and government neglet our educational sector, this is the fact that lead our student to malpractice.

  6. Mr Mike Omeri and other stakeholders in the educ sector should know Nigerians can’t be tricked; because the exams malpractice index is a major indicator of our corrupt societal values in government, and the followership which is rather responsible for the collapse in the educ system.

  7. Is actually worrisome because the economic impact of this menace is inevitable.Solutions should be the next option rather than pointing finger on one or two people, almost everybody is involved in this crime.
