My WAEC certificate not accessible, says Sanwoolu’s commissioner nominee
The ninth nominee screened by the 16-man ad-hoc committee has claimed that she was not able to access her West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) result.
Mrs Abolaji Dada, who happens to be a former Executive Secretary Apapa Local Government and also one of the 25 gubernatorial nominees made this claim while being screened earlier today.
Dada who claimed to have sat for her WAEC exam in 1984, asserted that no certificate was issued in the stated year.
“I had my WAEC exam in a government school so I felt it would not be difficult to access it, but I eventually made effort to retrieve my certificate when the need arose but was told that my school’s data was not captured.
“My claim can be verified,1984 WAEC certificate for my school was not accessible,”: she said
Dada, however, canvassed that certain revenue-generating functions should be shed off from the state to the local government to enhance the capacity of the councils.
She also noted that if eventually, the ministry of education happened to be her assigned portfolio, she would work at “restoring civic education in the Primary School curriculum so as to make the pupils patriotic, well behaved and well-mannered individuals in the society.”
