The Vice-Chancellor of Sokoto State University, Sokoto, Prof. Bashir Garba, MFR, has reiterated his commitment to the fight against all forms of examination malpractice and other inimical vices in the University.
Information officer of the university, Zayyanu Shehu revealed this in a press statement he signed and made available to SMARTS NEWS.
Prof. Garba noted that the main thrust of the Examinations Monitoring Committee is to halt examinations malpractice, not witch-hunting any student, as such, its success counts on the recording of zero misconduct during the examinations not the number of arrests.
The Vice-Chancellor said the EMC Committee would be fully supported by the University Management to ensure that no stone is left unturned in the fight against examination misconduct.
The Committee is reconstituted because some of the members serving it have been officially released by the University to further their studies and others have been assigned with other responsibilities.
Prof. Garba further maintained that on their part, they would make sure that all members of staff are committed to their duties diligently so that the students are adequately taught and supervised, as the case may be, by their lecturers.
He expressed his willingness to actively participate in the teaching of students and supervision of their projects with a view to motivating others to remain devoted to their duties.
Speaking earlier, the EMC Chairman, Dr. Mustapha Sani, who is also the Head of the Department of Geography, promised to justify their appointment by sustaining the tempo of war against examination fraud in the University. He, therefore, pledged to work as a team to ensure huge success.
