The government also proposed stiffer penalties for those involved in examination malpractice, including a fine of N200,000 or five years jail terms for all forms of malpractices in WAEC examinations.

Supervising Minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike, spoke on Thursday in Abuja, while inaugurating the governing councils and boards of four parastatals under Federal Ministry of Education.

“With regard to the nominees to the board of WAEC, my charge to you is simple: you must continue to ensure that the integrity of WAEC and its examinations is not compromised under any circumstances,” he said.

The boards and councils inaugurated were the that of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN); National Institute of Education Planners and Administrators (NIEPA); the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) and the National Committee of the West African Examinations Council (Nigeria) WAEC.
