WASSCE results withheld due to malpractices-WAEC


The West African Examinations Council has restated that all withheld results in its examinations were as a result of alleged malpractices.

The Head, National Office, Mr Patrick Areghan, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Lagos.

Areghan was speaking against the backdrop of reports in some sections of the media, accusing the council of deliberately withholding results of candidates supposedly for the 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

“Our attention has been drawn to reports in some quarters of how the council was deliberately withholding results of candidates of some states in the country.

“This, I will say, is wicked, malicious, misleading and a calculated attempt to drag the name of council into the mud or disrepute. It is utter ignorance.

“For emphasis, any candidate that has his or her result withheld is as a result of alleged examination malpractice.

“After necessary investigations of all alleged examination malpractice cases, innocent candidates would have their results released, while the guilty ones will have that subject or entire results cancelled.
