“Therefore, as immediate steps to address examination malpractice, I wish to announce the following: First, all those caught or suspected of examination malpractice should be prosecuted without delay or exemption; second, any teacher or school head caught and prosecuted should be terminated from service and third, all centers suspected of examination malpractice should have their results cancelled,” he said.
President Bio also mentioned that his government would strengthen school management and supervision, adding that school boards and management committees would be provided leadership skills training. He noted that school inspectors and supervisors would also ensure regular and systemic school supervision.
