The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has debunked the rumours on cancellation of the May/June 2020 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination, 2020 (WASSCE). In a statement by the Head of WAEC, Nigeria, Mr Patrick Areghan, on Sunday, the body explained that a notice alleging the cancellation of 2020 WASSCE did not emanate from the council but the handwork of mischief makers and consequently, false and misleading.

The statement reads, “Our attention has been drawn to a fake publication circulating in the social media, to the effect that the WAEC has cancelled the conduct of the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2020, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and was, therefore, set to refund N22,500 to candidates who had enrolled for the examination.
