Mr. Patrick Areghan, head of Nigeria National Council, WAEC has warned all Schools, supervisors, teachers, and candidates involved in malpractices to desist henceforth, saying anyone caught will be duly dealt with by the law.
The WAEC Boss also warned intended WAEC candidates to desist from examination malpractices, but to study hard to write and pass their exams. Adding that the Council will continue to sanction all cases of examination malpractice.
” It is the Child whose future is being destroyed. Parents must stop funding ‘expo’ for their children; it does not help. Those who indulge in posting items on designated platforms are nothing but destiny destroyers. Beneficiaries of such ‘help’ will never go unpunished as they will never have their results. All hands must be on deck to sanitize the system.” He advised.
Areghan during a media brief disclosed that a total of 89.79% of the results have been released, while 10.12% of the results were being processed due to diverse reasons.
