The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it is determined to sanitise the examination sub – sector in Nigeria , noting that many corrupt leaders started with examination malpractices .
JAMB stated this in its weekly bulletin obtained by our correspondent on Sunday.
The board said , “ Corruption is not a peculiar African or Nigerian problem .
Regrettably , most of the measures deployed to fight corruption , more often than not, fail to yield desired results .
If the malaise of corruption is not holistically addressed at the stage of examination malpractice , which is most times sponsored by parents, it will grow to become a monster .
“ Many corrupt leaders today might have started off on this path through experimenting with examination malpractices .
It is a fallacy to think that such individuals would outgrow such acts .
This set of individuals mature to something more destructive and demeaning in the long run.
The polluting effects of corruption warrant the adoption of a holistic approach in fighting corruption right from the school level.
“ JAMB is leading the onslaught against perpetrators of examination infractions .
It is the responsibility of citizens and other government agencies to sign up for this critical national assignment.
Unfortunately , national challenges are sometimes perceived by Nigerians as the exclusive headache of the agency . ”
