Federal Government Approves 5-Years Imprisonment For Anyone Caught Cheating During WAEC Examination

Candidates who cheat during examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, now risk a five-year jail term under an amendment to the 2004 WAEC Act being proposed by Federal Government.
Under the proposed amendment, examination malpractice will fetch five year jail term for offenders or the option of N200,000 fine or both.

The Minister of Education, Prof Ruqayyat Rufai, announced this in Abuja on Wednesday while briefing State House Correspondents on the outcome of the weekly FEC meeting. 
Rufai said the decision of the meeting, which was presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan, was to “give effect to the revised convention of WAEC, 2003 in Nigeria.”
She said the Council had subsequently directed the Ministry of Justice to take further necessary action on the subject.

Whats your take on this?


  1. They should include any parent who encourage the student to cheat, or block a lecturer.

  2. Plus big man pikin ooo

  3. Misplaced priority..they should start with the corrupt leaders we have.corruption reigns in the country and there is no punitive measures..Life imprisonment for any government official who steals public funds..
