As gathered by NIGERIA NEWS. Oloyede told reporters: “We urge the candidates to avoid any form of malpractice or shortcut to passing the examination.
“You are aware that we have banned some items from going into the examination halls; we have banned special glasses, wristwatches and many other things that we are aware our candidates use for illicit activities.
“As the candidates are getting cleverer, the board is getting wiser. We have done everything possible to avoid the issue of logging out.
“We are going to monitor every system and if we discover that a candidate deliberately shut down a system, he will carry his cross.
