Students warned against examination malpractice

10 February 2015, 10:14

Nasarawa - Prof. Mohammed Mainoma, the Vice Chancellor, Nasarawa State University, Keffi, has warned students of the institution against cultism, examination malpractice and other social vices.

He gave the warning on Monday in Keffi during drama presentation titled “Haki Mata” by 200 level students of the department of Theatre and Cultural Studies.

He observed that cultism, examination malpractices and others social vices had adversely affected the development of education in Nigeria.

"First and foremost, I want to commend the 200 level students of this department for organising this drama presentation aimed at fighting cultism, prostitution, examination practice and other social vices in the society.

"I want to advise you and other students to shun cultism, examination malpractice and others social vices in your interest, for the progress and development of the education and the country at large.’’

Mainoma reminded the students that examination malpractices and other social vices had negatively affected the education sector as well as the socio-economic development of Nigeria.

"The institution will never condone any negative act but will continue to initiate good policies that would improve on the standard of education in the state and the country at large,” he said.

The VC urged the students to take their studies seriously in order to excel in their academic pursuit and to justify the huge investment on their education by both their parents and the government.

Earlier, Latana Ahmed, the acting Head of the Department of Theatre and Cultural Studies, said the department decided to present the drama to address the issue of cultism and others social vices in the society.

She promised that the department would continue to organize programmes that would address cultism and others social vices and urged the students to eschew all forms of violence.
