School sues WAEC over seizure of students’ results

WAEC attributes improvement in students' performance to teacher training

Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel of the Federal High Court, Ibadan, on Tuesday adjourned till April 6 further hearing in the case of   seizure of the May/June 2015 SSCE results of   Christ National Model College, Ido, Ibadan.

The judge adjourned the case in order to allow the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to appear in court.

Mrs Elizabeth Shittu, counsel to the plaintiff, had approached the court to order the examination body to release the 2015 May/June SSCE results of 100 of its students.

According to Shittu, one of the allegations levelled against the secondary school by WAEC was that the 100 students who sat for the examination cheated

She said WAEC also alleged that the school carried out substitution of some examination papers like Animal Husbandry and English Language while the school failed to explain how the substitution was done.

But the plaintiff’s counsel argued that such substitution should not have led to the cancellation of all the papers of the entire students of the school.

WAEC, however, had yet to appear in court to respond to the plaintiff’s submission.
