School sues WAEC over results
At the hearing of the suit on Tuesday, Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel of the Federal High Court, Ibadan, adjourned the case till April 6.
he judge adjourned the case in order to allow the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to appear in court over seizure of the Senior School Certificate Examination.
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 . (NAN)
