In a recent development, the Chairman of the House Committee on Basic Education, Mr Zakari Muhammed, during a visit to one of the CBT centres, said the members of the House Committee on Basic Education have thrown their weight to the Computer-Based Test as it is part of the Federal Government’s plan to improve the education sector and in line with with global best practices.

In his words, “Basically, we need to be educated more. We are in support of the CBT and we cannot go back to paper-pencil; we must be in tandem with the world in the conduct of our examinations.

“The House (of Representatives) did not take any position on CBT, but there were fractions on the floor as to the adoption of both methods and I believe it is the reason why the House Committee on Basic Education was mandated to investigate. Nigeria cannot afford to maintain double standard as we know other African countries such as Uganda have been to our country to replicate our system such as the CBT.”
