Ekiti State Government on Wednesday doused the tension among candidates , parents, and education stakeholders in the state over the withheld 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination results by the West African Examination Council , assuring candidates that the results would be released this week.
The state Commissioner for Information , Mr Akin Omole, who debunked the allegation of the state ’s indebtedness to WAEC, said the results were put on hold owing to an error in computation.
Omole said, “ The seizure was caused by the mistakes made in some of the ways the results were computed. The issue of Ekiti owing money doesn’t arise , it was a blatant lie . The government immediately contacted WAEC and it tendered apologies to the state.
“ We appeal to our candidates and parents not to be ruffled by this . The government is handling the issue with all seriousness . Going by what WAEC said, the results will be released either on Thursday or Friday this week,” the commissioner said.
