In an effort to address the issue of exam malpractice in the education sector, the Mowe-Ofada Unit of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) has appealed to all stakeholders involved in education.

According to The Punch, during the recently concluded 2023 Unified Private Primary Schools Examination (UPPSE) held in Mowe-Ofada, Folorunsho Famiwo, the Unit Coordinator of NAPPS in Mowe, emphasised the importance of preventing malpractice.

He stated that “if learners achieve success through dishonest means, they may eventually become unqualified professionals.”

Famiwo added, “Curbing malpractice is not solely the responsibility of the government; it requires the cooperation of parents, teachers, school owners, and learners. Without the collaboration of these four groups, it is impossible to effectively address malpractice.”

The UPPSE was conducted across seven centers in Mowe-Ofada, including Transformation Schools, Maxipotential International School, God’s Time School, Femant School, Divine Royal Academy, Bradford School, and Lux Academy.

Maxi Potential School Proprietor, Mosunmola Komolafe, commended the successful organisation of the 2023 UPPSE, noting improvements compared to the previous year.

She praised the professionalism of the supervisors and the appropriate conduct of the 300 participating pupils.

The Head of the Examination Committee, Pamela Somorin, from Gerar Academy, Mowe, reported that “around 2,000 pupils from 225 schools in the Mowe-Ofada unit took part in the exam.”

She emphasised the convenience of conducting the exam within close proximity to the students’ respective schools, allowing diverse educational backgrounds to be represented.

Somorin highlighted the benefits of self-evaluation for school owners through their students’ performance in the exam.

The Head Supervisor for the 2023 UPPSE, Iyiolu Adeyefa, expressed concern over the transportation challenge faced due to the poor state of roads in Mowe. .

He stated, “Transporting the children to the exam centers on these bad roads poses a major challenge.”

Abdulwahid Giwa, the assistant supervisor, also noted an increase in the number of participants compared to the previous year.
