The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has written to the Ekiti State government to apologise over the delay in the release of the 2020 results of its candidates.
In the letter, the Council explain that the reason for this occurrence was not a result of perceived debt in the path of the state.
In the letter, addressed to the Commissioner for Education, Dr Olabimpe Aderiye, the Council stated that the reason for the delay was based on other issues, which will soon be rectified.
“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 from 5:45 p.m. on Wednesday.
“We condemn in its entirety, any attempt by anybody or group making 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 of results of the Ekiti State public schools.
“Please, accept the warmest assurances of our highest regard.’’Photo Credit: Twitter
