Breaking: 2020 WAEC Result Is Out (Check Your Result Here)

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said that withheld results were as a result of alleged malpractices.

Naija News reports the Head, National Office of WAEC, Patrick Areghan, made this known on Thursday in Lagos.

Areghan added that reports accusing the council of deliberately withholding results of candidates supposedly for the 2022 WASSCE were misleading, wicked and utter ignorance.

He further stressed that innocent candidates would have their results released while result of students guilty of malpractice would be cancelled.

He maintained that any student that has his/her result withheld is as a result of alleged malpractice.

He said; “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.”
