She said these activities continue to militate against the councils integrity. She said, it has been one of the Council’s major challenges.
She added that the Council was working closely with the Police, National Investigative Bureau (NIB), National Security and other security agencies to address the situation. She called on the awardees to be worthy ambassadors in the fight against the canker of examination malpractice.
The HNO assured all stakeholders that the Council will continue to put in place measures to ensure that the credibility of its examinations is not undermined.
Its factual that, some websites operators and bloggers normally give information of leaked papers which is normally not true. The council is therefore warning those who do engage in such practices to desist from it because it is a way of undermining the council’s credibility.
