WAEC To Hold NEC Meeting, To Decide On Withheld Results Today

The West African Examinations Council(WAEC) is set to decide on the cases of withheld results at the 76th meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC).

In a post via its official X handle on Tuesday, the examination body said it will deliberate on cases of malpractice and irregularities arising from the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates.

In August, WAEC initially released the 2023 WASSCE results, but the outcomes of 262,803 candidates were put on hold due to instances of examination malpractice.

However, the examination body has assured candidates that information about their results will be communicated after the NEC meeting concludes its deliberations.

The 76th Meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) to consider & decide on the malpractice/irregularity cases arising from the conduct of WASSCE for School Candidates, 2023 begins today,” the post read.

Recall that the examination body on Monday announced the appointment of Dr. Amos Josiah Dangut as the Head of the Nigeria National Office.

Dangnut is to take over from Patrick Areghan, who recently concluded his tenure.

The appointment of a new Head of the Nigeria National Office was confirmed in a statement on Monday by the examinations body.

According to the statement, Dangnut who was born on October 2, 1967, in Mbar District of Bokkos Local Government Area, Plateau State has served in several high-profile positions with WAEC before his recent elevation.
