While this is a good first baby step to start addressing poor academic issues in Nigeria, it failed to address the core issues that WAEC has had for decades. These include but not limited to the following:

1. The agency; WAEC must demonstrate that they can competently administer fraud free examination and must be held accountable for any leakages. You can not punish the students while letting go the officials of the WAEC. They must be part of the solution.

2. WAEC must not cancel any student̢۪s examination after it has been taken without any evidence of academic dishonesty. No student should be punished by examination cancellation without evidence of academic fraud, and imprisonment is not the proper punishment.

3. There must be set deadlines on grading and releasing of the reports. This agency has failed the students for decades, and its time it is addressed or be abolished.

4. What is the solution if WAEC continues to fail? I will recommend abolition.

5. JAMB must abolished. Lets to back to the system that lets the universities set their own admission standards. JAMB has degraded the value and quality of knowledge in the country. It has led to many half-educated graduates. The universities can use SAT and/or ACT as admission criteria, and not JAMB. It will pit our students against the world̢۪s best.

6. Parochial schools must be promoted as it used be. Academics was supreme during the great years of parochial intuitions such Bishop Shanahan, Holy Ghost College, Queens College, Kings College, CKC; just to name a few. Takeover by the government killed these institutions especially in the Southeast. We must go back to Parochial schools.

7. Private universities must be encourage, but must have very strong academic requirements to gain admission. Education must be strongly promoted in the country.

This law must address all these issues, and not just fine and imprisonment of candidates
