A Nigerian man has been nabbed for writing an exam his wife was originally scheduled to write.
The man’s name was given as Adekunle Aremu and his arrest came during the Osun Teacher’s recruitment exercise at the CBT centre of Ilesha College of Education.
He was apprehended as he tried to write the recruitment examination for his wife, Oyinade Sade Adegbite.
This was confirmed by the Information Officer at the Ministry of Education, Roseline Olwawuni, in a statement released.
In her submission, she said;
“He was caught after his passport photograph was said not to have a match with the photo records of applicants stored on the database of the Ministry of Education.”
The State Commissioner for Education, Hon. Folorunsho Oladoyin also reacted to the incident by saying;
“It is shameful that somebody who wants to teach students academically and morally could be involved in fraudulent malpractice, what example is such a person going to set for the students, the commissioner queried. This is rather unfortunate.
I am using this opportunity to warn our young people to desist from cutting corners, they should know that integrity pays and it’s the only way to success. The suspect has however been handed over to the law enforcement agents for further investigation and prosecution.”
