Cheating is an Act of Corruption, ICPC Says at N-Hyppadec Promotion Exams

The Kogi State Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Mr. James Okoro has stated that “cheating in examinations is an act of corruption, and it was an advantage to the cheater and a disadvantage to the honest and upright ones.”

Mr. Okoro made this declaration at the supervision of confirmation and promotion examinations of staff of the National Hydro-Electric Power Producing Areas Development Commission (N-HYPPADEC), which took place recently in Lokoja, the Kogi State Capital. 

Prior to the commencement of the examination, the Director of Community Development of the Commission, Dr. Mahmud Muhammad charged the staff to be good ambassadors of N-HYPPADEC, shun any form of cheating, and conduct themselves with utmost respect and dignity. 

ICPC participated as an observer to ensure the integrity of the process of examining the twenty-nine (29) staff that sat for the exams.

The examination was conducted concurrently across the Commissions offices in the country.
