According to him, the decision has taken immediate effect and encloses all the previous cases.
He stated that, part of NEC decisions on this matter were that WAEC would no longer keep exhibits of an established malpractice against candidates again beyond one year as it would get rid of those documents thereafter.
He noted that this policy is applicable to older cases except there is or are pending court prosecutions in that regard.
The acting spokesman explained that NEC was frowning at schools, teachers and exam officials who aid malpractice at their centres, disclosed that those who relinquished in the practice during the last year’s school-based exam, the second series for the private candidates for the same year and that of this year, which results were recently released and the cases against them been established would be published to the ministries of education of their respective states for proper sanctions.
He, however, explained on the part of WAEC, schools found in such practice would be derecognised and would not present candidates for forthcoming exams for a certain number of years which he did not stated.
He asserted all the affected candidates, teachers and schools would also be duly informed of the various NEC decisions as applicable.
