Kwara would penalise erring principals who cheat on exams.

The Kwara State Government has issued a new warning to principals of both junior and senior secondary schools in the state, warning them that if they continue to encourage examination malpractice in their schools, they would face harsh consequences.

Hajia Sa’adatu Modibbo Kawu, the state Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, issued the warning at a meeting with all of the state’s principals held at St Anthony Secondary School in Ilorin, the state capital.


“Despite the state government’s frequent warnings on zero tolerance for test misconduct,” Hajia Modibbo Kawu complained, “several principals have been indicted by the West Africa Examination Council for indulging in examination malpractice during last year’s WAEC examinations.”

“From now on, erring beliefs will not be tolerated,” she said.


Hajia Modibbo praised the current administration for paying State Universal Basic Examination Board and Teaching Service Commission employees’ wages and promotion arrears on time.


The Commissioner urged teachers in the state to continue to assist the current administration in its efforts to offer residents with sound and excellent education.


Hajia Modibbo also urged Junior School Principals to submit the list of pupils who have enrolled for the Basic Education Certificate Examination on time so that the Ministry can set the date for the next exam.


Alhaji Umar Abdullahi, the recently elected President of the All Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools, Kwara State Chapter, has previously praised the current administration for honoring its pledge to pay teachers’ promotion arrears.

Abdullahi reaffirmed their unwavering support for the current administration in the state’s efforts to improve the state’s education sector.


Mr Bashir Oyewole, the recently elected President of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, also spoke, praising the state’s current leadership for prioritizing education development.
