The Kogi state government has warned school principals against any form of exam malpractices in their various schools, saying any erring principal would be sanctioned.

The State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mr. Wemi Jones, gave the warning while unveiling the Kogi State Education Law 2020 to guide the operations of schools and activities of relevant stakeholders in education sector in the state.

”We are going to pay special attention to ‘miracle centres’,” he said, adding that the ministry had done data capturing of private schools operating in the state with those of the public schools coming soon.

He advised private schools that were yet to do data capturing to do so in earnest, warning that such schools would be sanctioned according to the relevant sections of the Education Law 2020.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the law was unveiled at the ‘Stakeholders’ Meeting On Education Law And Other Matter” in Lokoja.

Earlier, the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Pastor Emmanuel Idenyi, expressed the deep appreciation of the ministry to key players in the sector for honouring the invitation.

He stated that the synergy between the ministry and the stakeholders would be sustained to ensure that major decisions taken by the ministry receive blessings of all, while commending the commissioner for his open door policy.

Stakeholders at the meeting included: heads of all public and private tertiary institutions in the state, SUBEB, STETSCOM, ANCOPSS, NAPPS, NTI, NYSC, TRCN, WAEC, NECO, JAMB, Religious bodies, TUC, ASUSS, among others. (NAN)
