The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has reportedly banned private secondary school teachers from supervising the body’s internal and external examination across the country.
The Public Affairs Officer of WAEC, Demianus Ojijeogu made the disclosure at the weekend after a meeting held by the board.
He said, “We have recently uncovered that the said supervisors from private schools do aid examination malpractice, because they have nothing to lose. They have no pension nor gratuity from their employers, so most of them mainly look for money during national examinations.”
He further instructed aggrieved persons to reach out to the Ministry of Education for the reason for the ban.
Speaking further, he noted that any WAEC supervisor caught involved in examination malpractice will be punished, irrespective of the school the person in question is from.
