WAEC Exam ‘Cheaters’ Return Certificates After Christ Touched Them
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 (WAEC). Cos 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.
However, only a few responded, including a holder of Teachers’ Grade 11 certificate.
It 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.
