CNM Sec. School Sues WAEC Over Seizure Of Student's May/June Results



This is something we don't see most of the time in Nigeria and am happy Christ National Model College have taken it upon themselves to at least re-write the face of history. Normally, when WAEC seizes results of students, they will just give one reason or the other which is usually not genuine enough for their acts and the general public will take it like that.

However, a high school in Nigeria have chosen to sue WAEC on this act. 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.

I think this is a good move. What do you think?
