Sit-At-Home: Enugu Candidates Didn’t Miss Exam, Says WAEC


The West Africa Examination Council has said that no candidate in Enugu state missed its ongoing examination in spite of the IPOB-declared Mondays’ sit-at-home order.

The Deputy Registrar/Zonal Coordinator, WAEC, Mrs Eucharia Onodu disclosed this on Tuesday in an interview with NAN in Enugu.

Onodu said the sit-at-home order only affected the students emotionally, as many of them had to sleep over in their schools to be able to meet up.

According to her, some had to trek long distances, while others squatted with those in the hostels to be able to write the examination

This, she said, might not be comfortable for them, adding that some had to also wake early to meet up.

“I am aware some made extra effort, while others went to a lot of stress to write this exam and on our own part, we did not compromise the protocols put in place.

She said the commissioner later reached out to the community leaders who assured WAEC of using local vigilante to secure the centres.

“We really felt their presence at the various centres across the state and I am glad to announce that no community has reported any attack so far.

“And on our own, we used the regular police to secure materials,” she said.
