NGO takes message against exams malpractices to schools

A Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Nenbel Aid foundation has taken the message against examination malpractices to some selected secondary schools in Cross  River State.

The NGO is a youth centered foundation with special interest in the development of young people particularly in the areas of education and health.

Every year, it organizes event tagged "My Book My Future" where secondary schools students and youths generally are encouraged to cultivate reading habit.

In this year's edition tagged "The Lockdown Edition", the event held in two local government; Calabar South and Calabar Municipal local government areas, with over 1000 students and youths in attendance.

Speaking, the Executive Director, Mrs. Elizabeth Nji encouraged the students to develop interest in studying even as she gave them strategies for studying properly.

She said that she was inspired to take-up the sensitization exercise because as a University Don, she was worried about the culture examination malpractice amongst students thus her decision to start tackling it from secondary school.

While explaining the effects of examination malpractice to individuals and to nation building, she added that people can cheat their ways to the top but the only thing that can sustain them is their skills hence, the need to develop skills by studying.

Nji said that "Nenbel Aid foundation is actively involved in making information and knowledge available to young people to enable them make informed choices about their future for the overall benefit of the society. We do this by having our annual “my book my future” project, offering scholarships to deserving students and rehabilitation of libraries in rural schools. We also provide mentorship opportunities for students to guide them in making right choices.

My book my future project is an annual project that seeks an end to the culture of examination malpractice that has eaten deep into our education system. It is targeted at secondary school students to provide them with the right moral values for their university education. This will in turn have an effect on the kind of labour force in the country in the nearest future".

She added that "The second edition of the project tagged Lockdown edition took place on October 15th and 16th in the two local government areas in Calabar metropolis

In calabar south, the event took place in the Calabar south council headquarters with the Chairman Hon. Mrs Esther Bassey who was represented by the Vice Chairman, Hon. Ndabu Robert Hogan

Earlier, while declaring the event open, the Calabar South Chairman pledged her support to the foundation in the fight against examination malpractice. 

In Calabar municipal, the event took place in West African People’s Institute popularly known as WAPI with over 500 students in attendance. 

The event featured interactive sessions, quiz competition and formation of "My Book My Future club".
