Ebonyi Reps member threatens to sue WAEC over withheld students’ results

The member representing Ikwo/Ezza South Federal Constituency of Ebonyi State at the National Assembly, Hon. Chinedu Ogah has threatened to sue the West African Examination Council, WAEC, for witholding some examination results of Ebonyi indigenes.

Ogah expressed the displeasure in a statement he issued to newsmen and called on the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, to wield into the matter.

The philanthropist of repute urged the minister to sanction WAEC for derailing from its administrative mandate.

“Why should students of Ebonyi origin pass through such difficult situation after registering and sitting for WAEC examination with their counterparts from other states.

“This development if not given due attention can lead to youth restiveness and proliferation of other social vices among youths in the state”.

The federal lawmaker called on WAEC to immediately release the remaining part of the results belonging to indigenes of Ebonyi state.

“I urge WAEC to reverse the N500, 000 sanction placed on the affected schools as there are no evidence suggesting any form of malpractice by such schools.

“WAEC has examination supervisors, invigilators and general supervisors who oversee the examination.

“These officials never cancelled the examination when it took place so what then is the rationale for releasing part of the WAEC results and withholding others.

“We want the parts being withheld by WAEC to be released as they are critical subjects,”.

He noted that he had consulted his lawyers to institute legal action against WAEC if it refuses to rescind its decision.
