Ghanaian candidates’ results best in 3 years — WAEC

Spread the love

THE West African Examination Council (WAEC) said candidates from Ghana had produced best results in West African Senior School Certificate Examination(WASSCE) in the past three years.
WAEC’s Head of National Office in Nigeria, Mr. Charles Eguridu, disclosed this during at a dinner with newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.
Eguridu said that Nigeria, by its population, should be the best in the examination but lamented that stakeholders in the country were not taking education of their wards seriously.
“Over the past three years, candidates from Ghana have remained the best; it is saddening considering our population.
“ We have been paying lip service to teachers; some schools do not have facilities; candidates do not have laboratories, vocational centres, libraries and textbooks.
“The outcome of such educational system will be self-evident; it is high time we got more serious with our value system and adopt excellence as our watchword.
“It is not that Nigerians are less intelligent but we do not motivate our children; the love and quest for material things has taken over the level of responsibility in many homes,” he said.
According to him, children are not monitored at home as they are left to watch movies and do other things at the detriment of their studies.
On the perceived credibility issue between WAEC and the National Examination Council (NECO) results in terms of students’ performances, Eguridu said that the council’s researchers would look into the matter.
