“The examination malpractice cases for 2023 SSCE External included two centres, one each in Kaduna and Ogun States involved in whole centre cases.

sharing whatsapp messages to candidates.”

Speaking on the e-posting Software, the Registrar said prior to the introduction of the Annual Staff Posting Calendar, Wushishi said posting of staff for various assignments was greeted with a lot of complaints arising from lopsidedness, and favoritism which gave rise to serious agitations.

“What we are doing today is taking it a step further by digitalising the process and making it seamless, thereby addressing some of those

concerns associated with the manual process.

“With this new development, every staff will be notified at the beginning of the year about the type and number of assignments they are eligible for, as well as the place of assignment,” he noted.
