According to Patrick Areghan, Head of National Office, West Africa Examination Council, the body arrested some of its supervisors who revealed questions to candidates before the commencement of the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination.
He stated that the monitoring exercise to some schools in Yaba, Lagos State was to monitor the exams which commenced on Monday and to ensure that students and teachers complied with COVID-19 safety measures.
“Students should not go about looking for anything they call expo. It is shameful, supervisors collecting question papers from WAEC and going somewhere to open the questions. Yesterday we caught one in Nasarawa. They don’t know that we have a way of detecting them. In Bauchi, we caught another. We detected it from here. In Port Harcout, a candidate did the same thing and was arrested,”
Also speaking on this is the Rivers State Government, Prof. Kaniye Ebeku, Commissioner for Education said :
“All allegations of corrupt practices in the ongoing WASSCE will be investigated.
“Currently, we have no such report; bear in mind it is important to hear from the other party.”
