Pursuit of medicine, law and others, with qualifications are the cause of malpractice said Oloyede

The Joint Admissions Matriculation Examination (JAMB) Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, mumbles that the desperation to study medicine, law, and other professional courses and priority for academic qualifications are the problems greatly contributing to examination malpractices in Nigeria.

Okoyede also accused schools of participating in fraudulent activities, most especially during external examinations.

The menace has eaten deep into other systems and not only on education.

The Registrar made the statement while delivering the 10th Annual Lecture of the forum of Heads of Federal Government Establishment in Ekiti State. 

He spoke on the topic, Value Reorientation For Effective Service Delivery: JAMB Perspectives.

Ishaq revealed that some digital-based reforms were tailored toward sustaining JAMB's zero tolerance for impersonation, malpractices and other forms of illegality and irregularities.

According to him, these steps such as the National Identity Number (NIN), live monitoring of examination registration, and the adoption of the Central Processing System in admission placements were a part of the reform process.

The special welfare package and incentive are the reforms within the board for the workers that have begun, he added.

These measures will bring out the best in the workers and also curb corrupt practices.

Professor Ishaq concluded by saying that any practice that targets compromising the integrity of examinations speaks of danger to the nation's collective hopes and the developmental aspirations of the nation.
