It said the examination was held in Cote d’ Voire, according to the Registrar and Chief Executive of NABTEB, Dr. Olatunde Aworanti.
Aworanti made this position known when he announced the release of the 2014 May/June National Business Certificate and National Technical Certificate examination results.
The NABTEB boss lamented low enrollment of its examination in Nigeria said 29,129 candidates representing 36.64% scored five credits and above including English Language and Mathematics.

He said the board recorded 1,952 cases of examination malpractice against 5,108 malpractice cases recorded in 2013.
According to him, examinations malpractice cases were low in 2014 because of introduction of e-learning packages for candidates, intensive monitoring and use of biometric data capturing system.
He called for the implementation of new basic curriculum involving vocational activities, if the nation’s quest for rapid technological development would be achieved.
