WAEC Breaks Silence On 2018 WASSCE And Ban On Private School Teachers


The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has insisted that the ban on private school teachers from supervising the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) was in effect.

The body was reacting to threat by Christian schools under the aegis of the Association of Christian Schools in Nigeria (ACSN) to withdraw from its examinations.

WAEC Head of Public Affairs, Demianus Ojijeogu, said the council banned all private school teachers in the country, irrespective of their religion.

“We have recently uncovered that the said supervisors from private schools do aid exams malpractice because they have nothing to lose”, he told Thisday.

“They have no pension or gratuity from their employers, so most of them mainly look for money during national examinations.

“Any WAEC supervisor caught involving in malpractice will be punished, irrespective of the school the person in question is from”, he added.

On the 2018 WASSCE, Ojijeogu assured that the council had put in place the machinery that will ensure successful conduct.

“The safety of our staff and other ad-hoc personnel and the prevention of examination malpractices is important.

“There will be continuous monitoring of examination centres throughout the period; we are also working on a timely release of the results”, the official added.
