The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says adequate measures are in place for the safety of all candidates who registered for its 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates.
The council’s Head, National Office (HNO), Mr Patrick Areghan, gave the assurance during an interactive session with newsmen on the level of preparations ahead of the examination nationwide, in Lagos.
Areghan stated that the examination had been scheduled for Monday May 8 to Friday, June 23, spanning a period of seven weeks.
The WAEC boss said that the council could not feign ignorance of the level of insecurity in the country; hence conducting examinations under such a situation had been a daunting task.
According to him, there are many flashpoints all over the country, and conducting examinations in such areas requires extra security arrangements.
