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.
