To what extent did exam malpractice impact on the corruption level in Nigeria?  Or is it right to assume that most highly corrupt people in Nigeria 'learnt' corruption from 'expo'?

Most of the highly placed corrupt individuals are seen to have carved their teeth in corruption at an early stage through examination malpractice. 

Many Nigerians may have issues with this position, but the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it is determined to sanitise the examination sub-sector in Nigeria, noting that many corrupt leaders started from abuse of the sector
JAMB stated this in its weekly bulletin obtained by our correspondent on Sunday. 

“Corruption is not a peculiar African or Nigerian problem. Regrettably, most of the measures deployed to fight corruption, more often than not, fail to yield desired results. If the malaise of corruption is not holistically addressed at the stage of examination malpractice, which is most times sponsored by parents, it will grow to become a monster.

“Many corrupt leaders today might have started off on this path through experimenting with examination malpractices. It is a fallacy to think that such individuals would outgrow such acts. This set of individuals mature to something more destructive and demeaning in the long run. The polluting effects of corruption warrant the adoption of a holistic approach in fighting corruption right from the school level.

“JAMB is leading the onslaught against perpetrators of examination infractions. It is the responsibility of citizens and other government agencies to sign up for this critical national assignment. Unfortunately, national challenges are sometimes perceived by Nigerians as the exclusive headache of the agency.”
