In what sounds like academic drama, 29 persons have returned their West African Examination Council (WAEC) Certificates which they cheated to acquire while they were ‘in the world’.
This announcement which was made by WAEC on Tuesday, August 8, stated that the candidates, now born again Christians, returned their certificates to the Council for engaging in examination malpractice when they sat for the exams.
The examination body in a statement released after its 62nd National Examination Committee meeting recently, said that among the 29 certificates that were returned by the born again Christians, includes one that was issued 33 years ago (1984) and another one that was issued 32 years ago (1985). A breakdown showed that four certificates each were returned by born again Christians who on their own confessed that they cheated while sitting for their exams between 2011 and 2013. Others include three that sat for the examinations in 2000, 2004, 2008, two each in 1992 and 2003 while one certificate each was returned by born again Christians who sat for the examination in 1984, 1985, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2012.
