Anambra Moves to Shut Down 486 'Miracle' Exam Centres

In order to  curb examination malpractices in Anambra State education sector, the the Commissioner for Education, Professor Kate Omenugha, announced the move to shut down not fewer that 486 ‘miracle’ centres.

Speaking at the 10th anniversary of St. Joseph’s Academic Award for 2014, the commissioner observed that the miracle centres had been aiding and abating examination malpractices, especially during West African School Certificate Examinations, WASC, and National Examination Council, NECO, examinations.

According to her, the decision to shut down the magic centres became necessary due to the manner their operators have fashioned them to swindle unsuspecting, desperate candidates.

She said: “We have government and approved private schools that are saddled with the responsibility of training our children to become functional members of our society.” (Vanguard)
