Abia Government Set To Withdraw Licenses Of Schools Delisted By WAEC For Exam Malpractice

Due to their involvement in test malpractice, some secondary schools in Abia State have been barred from taking the regional body’s exams by the West African test Council, or WAEC.

 

In a briefing to reporters in Umuahia, Commissioner of Education Professor Uche Eme Uche disclosed that the state had recently received notification of the development from the exam authority.

 

The commissioner stated that the majority of the impacted schools were private, notwithstanding her failure to name them.

 

The commissioner threatened to revoke the operating licenses of the impacted schools in order to discourage similar actions in the future. She disapproved of any actions that could damage the state’s reputation.

She stated that the state backed WAEC’s decision since it would prevent certain unscrupulous operators from debasing and degrading academic standards in schools.

 

Uche said that the state administration had already shuttered several of the impacted schools because of their unwholesome practices, and expressed sadness that they had disregarded the warnings and kept taking short cuts instead.

 

Prior to this, Governor Alex Otti gave his approval for the urgent renovation of 170 primary and 51 public secondary schools around the state, according to Commissioner of Information Prince Okey Kanu.

 

He said that three secondary and ten primary schools would be chosen from each of the state’s seventeen local government areas.
