Wushishi made this know while speaking during an interactive session with journalists on key milestones achievement of the council in Abuja
He said that by virtue of being the body conducting the largest numbers of examinations, migrating to CBT would take gradual step adding that, for JAMB, they are not examining candidates in so many subject areas, which made it very easy to embrace CBT in their examinations and do multiple choice in their exams.

On stemming examination malpractices in its upcoming SSCE internal examinations, Wushishi said there was no fear of exams leakages as it had put in place sophisticated mechanisms to check malpractices.

Reeling out the achievements of the council, he said that in its 25 years of existence, the council had discharged its responsibilities in line with the mandate of the Organization and also, it had examined 34 million Nigerian youths as well as conducted trial testing exams for selection of best items in its examination.

Also speaking, the Acting Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Chris Maiyaki, said the committee to select the governing councils will soon be constituted.
