The West African Examination Council (WAEC), has hinted at possible legal action against education think tank, Africa Education Watch.
Africa Education Watch on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, released a report on its assessment of the 2020 West African Secondary Schools Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The report alleged a number of irregularities witnessed during the period of the examination, which it termed unprecedented.
The claims by the Africa Education Watch also added that 2020 WASSCE exams papers were intentionally leaked in order to help the students pass.
But WAEC says the report by the think tank is replete with factual inaccuracies.
Head of the Legal Department at WAEC, Rev. Victor Brew, Speaking at a press conference to address the supposed inaccuracies said all options are on the table, including legal action against Africa Education Watch over its misleading report.
“All options are on the table including a legal suit. These are things that management has to first strategize on. Don’t be surprised if you hear of it in the coming days. But I can’t tell the actual date this will happen.”
