The Delta State Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Chief Patrick Ukah, has charged school heads in public schools in the state to adhere strictly to approved guidelines in the conduct of examinations in the state.

The commissioner made this known when he monitored the conduct of the 2019 promotion examination in public primary and secondary schools in Isoko North and South Local Government Areas on Tuesday, July 16, 2019.

At Aradhe Grammar School, Aradhe, Isoko North Local Government Area, the commissioner frowned at the non availability of examination question papers as at 9:20 am for an examination that was to start at 9:00 am, he therefore ordered that examination supervisors should be at the custodian centers by 7am to collect examination question papers so that they can distribute the examination materials on time.

He cautioned the principal of the school to make sure they conduct the examination according to the time scheduled for it, so as to guard against leakage of the examination question papers.
