The cases of examination malpractices doubled in 2019 compared to that of 2018, as 40,630 candidates were caught against the 20,181 candidates apprehended in 2018.

The NECO Acting Registrar, Mr Abubakar Gana, said the reason for the higher figure in 2019 was not unconnected with the deployment of the new biometric verification device used during the examination, as well as more robust monitoring by staff and external monitors.

According to him, NECO has also recommended three schools, one each in Katsina, Kebbi and Oyo States, for de-recognition for two years.

He explained that the schools were involved alleged in mass cheating/whole centre cases.

Mr Gana added that a total of 18 supervisors have been blacklisted for various offences ranging from poor supervision, aiding and abetting, as well as connivance with non-candidates to write answers on chalkboard among other offences.
