The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has approved the sum of N24million for the payment of administrative charges for 13,390 candidates in public secondary schools across Ekiti schools who will write April/May 2019 School candidates WAEC Examination.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mr. Ayodeji Ajayi, who made this known in his office in Ado Ekiti said the approved sum would be used to pay One thousand, Eight hundred and Fifty Naira to cover both the administrative charges and other incidental expenses relating to the examination.
Mr. Ajayi, who warned that any school caught in examination malpractices would be punished accordingly, reminded the Principals of the position of the State government on examination malpractice. He said the Kayode Fayemi-led administration still has zero tolerance for examination malpractice.
The Permanent Secretary however disclosed that Vice Principals who have served for over twenty years would henceforth be engaged in supervision of Certificate Examinations in the State.
He therefore directed all school Principals in the state not to collect any money from any candidate who would be writing the examination.
