About Exam Ethics Marshals International


Exam Ethics Marshals International (EEMI) is a global movement of education leaders and stakeholders committed to promoting best practices in admission, teaching, examination, certification, registration and regulation systems in education. EEMI was founded in Nigeria in 1996 by Ike Onyechere, MFR, in response to the rise of examination malpractice with all attendant dangerous consequences and the need for sustainable institutional countervailing organization to combat it and defend the code of ethics, truth, honesty and integrity that govern the dissemination of knowledge. EEMI is working with the collaboration, support and facilitation of governments, educational institutions and agencies.

Boiled down to its core essence, Exam Ethics Campaign to promote exam ethics and combat exam malpractice is a matter of life and death. Unqualified, incompetent and unethical leaders, professionals and workers being produced and licensed through exam malpractice are committing fatal errors that are destroying lives and dreams. People are being killed through fatal errors, collapsed buildings, failed projects, failed education and miscarriage of justice by licensed but incompetent medical professionals, building professionals, public officers, educators and cash-and-carry judicial officers. Exam malpractice is the mother of corruption that is breeding debilitating underdevelopment, insider-enabled fraud and scams, mass poverty and deaths.

The tragic and fatal circle of consequences can only end when exam malpractice is eradicated; when the code of truth, honor and integrity of education is restored; and   certificates and licenses reflect the true learning and character of their holders.

No person knows who will be the next victim of the next fatal medical error, collapsed building, failed project, failed education and miscarriage of justice by “professionals” certified and licensed through exam malpractice and academic dishonesty. This is why you stand commended for joining to defend the integrity of education. It is a matter of self-preservation.
