Discrepancies exist between the West African Examinations Council and Presidency over issuance of an Attestation result


The Presidency and the West African Examinations Council, over the weekend, disagreed on the reason for the issuance of an Attestation of Results to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.

While the Presidency insisted that Buhari didn’t apply for the results of the West African School Certificate Examination, which he claimed to have sat for in 1961, the examination body said the document was issued because the President applied for it.

WAEC’s spokesman, Damianus Ojijeogu, who stated this in an interview revealed that the examination would not have given the president the document if he didn’t apply.

He said according to WAEC rules, only president Buhari or a court that could have asked for the results.

Also, WAEC said in issuing an Attestation of Results to replace a lost or missing WAEC certificate, the subjects, where the candidate had F9, would no longer be captured.
