“We read from some social media that WAEC has rated performance of states in our recent West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), presumably the 2022 examination for school candidates. I want to say here that the ranking is completely false as it did not emanate from the council’’, Patrick Areghan.

The report rated Enugu as being first, followed by Edo and Benue, with 93.9, 93.5, and 91.7 percent respectively among others. It ranked Kebbi as the 20th out of the 37 ranked states, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), in the public school-based performance data, supposedly made available by the council
