The Nigerian Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has called on the West African Examination Council (WAEC), to simplify its registration processes to give equal opportunity to every child in the country.
The Minister stated this in Abuja on Monday, 20th March, 2017, when he played host to a delegation of the WAEC Governing Council members led by its Chairperson, Dr. Evelyn Kandakai, who were on a courtesy visit to his office.
Also speaking, the Minister of State for Education, Professor Anthony Anwukah, commended WAEC for its contribution to the development of education in Nigeria and other four member countries, namely; Ghana, Gambia, Sierra-Leone and Liberia.
He called on the chairperson to use her position as a role model to the Girl-Child.
In her remarks, Dr. Kandakai, acknowledged Nigeria’s outstanding contributions to WAEC, noting that such support has greatly sustained the examination body over the years.
Founded in 1951, WAEC is an examination body that conducts the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for West African senior secondary school leavers.
