The results of the WASSCE held in Ekiti will be published on Friday, the commissioner said.
After concerns arose in the state after the West African Examination Board rejected the results of the 2020 high school diploma exams, the Ekiti state government assured parents, students, and stakeholders in a statewide statement that the results would be released Friday, November 6.
Tensions in the state grew as applicants and their parents besieged schools and internet cafes to check their exam results realized that the examining board was denying the results.
On Monday, the WAEC announced the publication of the WASSCE 2020 results.
It was reported that parents became more anxious because it was said that the state government owes the examining body several million nairas, and Governor Kayode Fayemi announced a free WAEC fee for all public school students.
One parent said: “The government should show mercy to these students who had been at home for months before the exam was written. They must find ways to tackle the root cause of this unhealthy development, because many applicants will use the results when they go to college. We beg and plead with the government to do it quickly. ”
State Information Commissioner Akin Omole, who denied allegations of government debt to the WAEC, said the results were on hold due to a miscalculation.
Omole said: “The abduction was caused by some errors in the calculation of results. There is no question of Ekiti’s debt, it was a blatant lie. The authorities immediately contacted the WAEC and apologized to the state.
“We urge our candidates and our parents not to worry about it. The government takes this issue very seriously. According to the WAEC, the results will be published on Thursday or Friday this week, ”said the commissioner.
