The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Nigeria office has issued a warning about the activities of rogue website owners who are attempting to discredit the ongoing 2022 school-based West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates.
Candidates who use operators of fraudulent tutorial websites that specialise in luring unsuspecting WASSCE candidates by leaking live question papers may not have results after six years of secondary school education, according to the council.
This is stated in a press release issued on Wednesday by Moyosola Adeyegbe, the Acting Head of Public Affairs at the WAEC National Office in Yaba, Lagos.
The Council warned parents, school owners, and the general public about unethical activities being carried out by some unscrupulous elements during the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates, 2022.

Mrs. Adeyegbe stated that the Council is aware of “These vile individuals, most notably the “Rogue Website Operators,” who are hell-bent on sabotaging the noble efforts and concrete arrangements put in place by the West African Examinations Council to ensure the successful conduct of the examination.”
“Candidates are strongly advised that there are no shortcuts to exam success.” Any candidate caught in this act will be sanctioned appropriately, as approved by the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC), the Council’s highest decision-making organ on examination-related matters. It will be painful for them to spend six years in secondary school with no results to show for their hard work and learning.
“WAEC would like to take this opportunity to encourage parents to encourage their children/wards to study hard and to refrain from patronising these evil peddlers who are out to destroy their children/wards’ destiny.” Parents are also encouraged to stop funding these illegal activities.
“May we also use this medium to urge the various Ministries of Education to warn invigilators, supervisors, school administrators, and school owners who are fond of extorting and harassing candidates to pay for “Examination Settlement,” that such actions will not be tolerated, and any school caught will face appropriate sanctions.”
