INEC Turns Down WAEC Request, Insist That Election Must Hold In Edo State


The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has concluded plans to relocate candidates writing the General Certificate Examination (GCE) on Saturday, September 10 in Edo state to other centres outside the state.

Speaking ahead the governorship election scheduled to hold in Edo state on Saturday, the WAEC Head of Public Affairs in Nigeria, Mr Demianus Ojijeogu, said the exam body has secured examination centres in Agbor, Delta state and Ore in Ondo state for the affected candidates.

Ojijeogu explained that the council wrote a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow the candidates and WAEC officials free movement on the day of the examination after proper accreditation but the request was turned down for security reasons.

He also stated that WAEC would not be responsible for the relocation of the candidates to the two states, adding that the council is hoping the state government would assist with the relocation of the candidates.

The WAEC official, however, reiterated that examiners would be on ground to conduct the examination for candidates who would be at the venue of the examination.

It will be recalled that Edo state governorship election is expected to hold on the same day GCE candidates are expected to sit for their Mathematics paper.
