The registrar revealed that 8,518 candidates have been booked for various forms of examination malpractices as against 11,419 candidates in the previous year, indicating a decline in the number of malpractice cases by 24.4 per cent.

Professor Wushishi said two centres in Kaduna and Ogun states were involved in the whole centre malpractice cases, adding that two supervisors, one each in Oyo and Lagos states, had been blacklisted for poor supervision, inability to control the candidates as well as aiding and abetting malpractice.

The Council also unveiled an e-posting software designed to address challenges associated with posting of staff for out-of-station assignment.

Professor Wushishi said prior to the introduction of the software, posting of staff for various assignments were greeted with a lot of complaints arising from alleged lopsidedness and favouritism, thereby leading to agitations.
