In what may come as a
big surprise to most people, no fewer than 15 persons recently returned
certificates issued to them by the West African Examinations Council
according to them, they had to give up the certificates because they
cheated during the examination, and now as Born Again Christians, they
could not live with “the sin.”
SunNews reports that some
individuals approached WAEC through letters seeking restitution after
confessing how they dubiously acquired their certificates when they
wrote the examinations at various periods.
The Council wrote back
to them, stating that what they were expected to do was to return the
certificates awarded in line with the rules and regulations guiding the
conduct of the examinations.
was learnt that those who complied with the directive returned their
certificates to various WAEC offices nationwide and the council took
their case to the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC), which, at its
55th meeting in Lagos, cancelled the returned 15 certificates.
