Corps members warn students, parents against exam malpractice dangers
CORPS members belonging to the Anti-corruption Community Development Service group in the Batagarawa Local government Area of Katsina State have warned secondary school students and parents against consequences of examination malpractice as various certificate examinations approach.
The group in a sensitisation programme held at Hassan Usman Katsina Comprehensive Secondary School, Batagarawa, noted that examination malpractice was the bane of the educational system in the country.
Three members of the CDS group, who anchored the programme, took the students through the manifold issues related to corrupt practices in schools.
One of the speakers, Ibrahim Dayibu, said examination malpractice posed great dangers to students and society at large.
He stated, “In most cases, he who engages in uncouth acts such as examination malpractice will end up sabotaging his credibility. Apart from the fact that those who engage in this practice often develop all sorts of dishonest acts unbecoming of responsible citizens, they also make bad leaders in the long run.”
Describing the act as ungodly, one of the speakers, Hamza Abdullahi, said many students often indulged in examination malpractices due to needless pressure from their parents.
