The Head of National Office, West African Examination Council , Nigeria, Mr Patrick Areghan, in a statement on Sunday urged Nigerians to disregard the fake publication circulating on social media.

 

He said, “Our attention has been Attracted to an invalid publication circulating in the social media, to the effect that the West African Examinations Council had cancelled the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and was, therefore, set to refund the sum of N22,500.00 to candidates who had enrolled for the examination.

“The publication is patently false and deceitful. It is nothing but the handiwork of mischief makers who are out to defraud innocent and unsuspecting candidates and their parents/guardians. This piece of news is certainly not from the West African Examinations Council. It falls short of the Council’s style, language and factual details. They got it all wrong.

“The examination was supposed to start in Nigeria on April 6, 2020 and not April 15, 2020, as stated by the authors. The examination fee is N13,950.00 only, not N22,500.00. It is, therefore, not reasonable to refund candidates an amount higher than what they had paid to register for the examination.”
