Head of National Office, West Africa Examination Council, Patrick Areghan, has announced the arrest of some of its appointed officials engaged in the conduct of the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
While disclosing this on Thursday, Areghan stated that the supervisors revealed questions to candidates before the commencement of the exams.
He disclosed this during a monitoring exercise to some schools in Yaba, Lagos State.
Areghan also told the candidates to shun examination malpractices and rely on their ability.
According to him, the visit 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 that supervisors are 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,” said Areghan.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
