She said, “We want to have a new crop of supervisors and if there is a question of examination malpractice, the particular supervisor will pay the price.

“WAEC’s punishments for examination malpractice offenders should be commensurate with the offence committed and metted out to the right offenders.

“The decision of the Soludo-led administration to combat examination malpractice is informed by the resolve to produce qualitative individuals who would contribute to the development of the State and still be exportable abroad.”
