THE Bauchi State government has declared its readiness to clamp down heavily on any erring school in the state that violates the rules and regulations governing the ongoing West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE).

The warning was handed down by the state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Muhammad Aminu Ibrahim, on Monday, while going round both public and private schools in Bauchi and its environs to monitor the examinations with a team of officials from the ministry.

Speaking with journalists after monitoring the examinations, the commissioner stated that there was a high level of compliance with the rules and regulations guiding the examinations this year, especially in government-owned schools, compared with what obtained last year.

“There was a remarkable improvement when one compares the situation we found in schools this year with what we saw last year. We recorded many irregularities last year, but this year, we only recorded the problem of registration of external candidates in private schools. This has stopped in public schools as we reprimanded the principals found wanting last year,” the commissioner said.

He stated that the state government had taken adequate measures this year to ensure compliance with WAEC’s rules and regulations as they concerned the SSCE, saying that this was done in the dignity and integrity of the examinations.
