‘WAEC provided data on Chibok girls’

The Head of the Nigeria National office of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Mr. Charles Eguridu, on Friday revealed that council gave the Federal Government data of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.

Over 200 students of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents on April 14 last year.
Speaking with the Education Correspondent Association of Nigeria (ECAN) in Abuja on recent development in the Council, Eguridu said security agencies and the Ministry of Education could not provide for the government the data on the abducted girls.
He said, “We do not rely on invigilators or security operatives to detect examination malpractice, we have technology to do that.
“You will recall that when the unfortunate incident in Chibok, when those innocent girls were abducted by Boko Haram, security agencies and the Ministry of Education could not provide the data on those abducted by the insurgents.
“It was WAEC that provided government the picture, names and date of birth of each of the abducted girls. It is because our database is secure and credible.”
The WAEC chief said some ministry official, parents and teachers aided examination malpractice.
