Examination malpractice refers to any deliberate act of wrongdoing that is contrary to the rules of examinations.

It denotes a situation in which candidates are given undue advantages before, during or after an examination, with a view to making good grades.

Examination malpractice harms our society. The causes of exam mal-practice include parental failure. It is part of parents’ duties to train their children to be self-dependent.

Another reason is our faulty education system. It has been ruined by businessmen and women who are only interested in making money.

Also, some of the teachers in our schools are of low quality because of the owners’ inability to pay professional teachers.

Nevertheless, students’ attitudes also matter. Some students are too lazy to study. They have little time for studies: they attend parties and engage themselves in cult activities.

A nation that is backward academically because of its failure to produce students that can think independently will surely experience high unemployment rate.

Exam malpractice should be reduced if it cannot be completely eradicated. Our society should be moving forward, with great future leaders.

In conclusion, examination malpractice should be stamped out before it wreaks further havoc on the social, religious, economic and political life of Nigeria.

President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday in Abuja said the present administration would investigate and bring to book all perpetrators of mayhem across the country, reiterating that no religion or civilised culture tolerates violence, especially the taking of another life.
Speaking at separate meetings with with the Qadiriyya Muslim Movement in Africa and the Izalatul-Bid’a-Wa-Iqamatus-Sunnah at the State House in Abuja, the President said anyone, or group of persons, who unleash violence on the innocent in the name of a movement, cause or religion lack understanding of the ordinances of God.
“You can’t kill to please God; and I know no religion tolerates the taking of another person’s life in the name of a  religious movement. There is never a justification for killing any member of the society. We have been tackling the Boko Haram menace, and we have made significant impact, and we will extend the measures to stop all wanton killings,’’ he said.
The President said the security apparatus will be consistently reviewed to check threats to the peaceful co-existence of all Nigerians, and ensure the safety of lives and properties.
The President told the delegation that his political party, the All Progressives Congress, campaigned on three issues, stressing that the federal government had been consistent in ensuring that it provides adequate security, fights corruption and stimulates the economy for creation of jobs.
“Our priority is to also ensure that everyone in the country has something to eat. We are really concerned about the underprivileged. Graciously, God has been hearing our prayers. In the past two years, we have had bountiful harvest due to favourable conditions. All over the country, we have reports of farmers posting good harvests,” he said.
On corruption, the President said security agencies will continue to expand their dragnets to ensure that sanity is restored into public offices.
