He advocated the introduction of vocational activities at the early stage, pointing out that “techno-entrepreneurship should be our national slogan in this era of knowledge explosion.”
The NABTEB boss also said that the board recorded a drop in examination malpractices from 5,108 in 2013 to 1,952 in 2014.
