Areghan , who spoke during a monitoring exercise to some schools in Yaba , Lagos State , also told students taking WASSCE to shun examination malpractice and rely on their ability .
According to him , the visit was to monitor the exams which commenced on Monday and to ensure that students and teachers complied with COVID – 19 safety measures.
“ Students should not go about looking for anything they call expo . It is shameful , supervisors collecting question papers from WAEC and going somewhere to open the questions.
Yesterday we caught one in Nasarawa .
They don’ t know that we have a way of detecting them.
In Bauchi, we caught another .
We detected it from here. In Port Harcout , a candidate did the same thing and was arrested, ” said Areghan .
