The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has tendered its unreserved apology to the Ekiti State government over the delay in the release of the 2020 results of public schools in the state.

Candidates in Ekiti State had been unable to access their results via the online platform provided by the Council after it released the general SSCE results on Monday, November 2. This fuelled the rumour that WAEC delayed the release of the results because of the huge debt owed by the State government.

However, WAEC, in a letter dated 5th November 2020 signed by WAEC’s Branch Controller, Alhaji Olajide Hakeem, for the Head of National Office, and addressed to the Commissioner for Education, Dr. Olabimpe Aderiye, clarified that the government of Ekiti was not in any way indebted to the council.

The letter read, “On behalf of the national office and the entire WAEC, I hereby tender our unreserved apology for the delay that occurred in the release of the Ekiti State public schools’ results. The Council wishes to state clearly that Ekiti State was not in any way indebted to WAEC. However, it should be noted that many candidates from all parts of the country were unable to access their results throughout yesterday (Wednesday) due to the heavy traffic congestion on our side. The results were eventually accessed at 5:45 pm on Wednesday.

It added, “We condemn in its entirety any attempt by anybody or group making a campaign of calumny to achieve any selfish desires on this very sensitive issue. Ekiti State government remains one of our very reliable clients and we cherish the cordial relationship existing between the state and the council, which we intend to keep. We regret any inconvenience arising from the delay in the results of the Ekiti State public schools. Please, accept the warmest assurances of our highest regard.”
