Group Demands Prosecution Of WAEC Officials Aiding Exams Malpractice

The Exam Ethics Marshals International has dragged the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to the Federal High Court in Abuja, demanding the names of officials aiding and abetting examination malpractice.

The suit followed a press conference where the WAEC said it had sanctioned examination administrators who aided and abetted malpractices between May 2013 and December 2014.

The group filed the suit with registration number FHC/ABJ/CS/487/2015 through its lawyer, Mr Jeremiah Akahazemea, demanding for the names of the invigilators, supervisors and the students for prosecution.

Akahazemea asked the court to compel WAEC to provide them with relevant information that would assist the organisation to realise its objectives.

The lawyer said that non-disclosure of the culprits made it impossible for education stakeholders, institutions and the public to carry out their civic duties.

Specifically, the group asked the court to compel WAEC to produce its officials that supervised the May/June 2013, May/June 2014 and Nov/Dec 2014 WAEC examinations.

It said this was in line with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. (NAN)
