Two WAEC employees sacked over 2015 BECE leakage

The Council in June, 2015 announced the cancellation of five papers on the basis that they have been compromised.


According to a report by Graphiconline, a third staff who was to supervise the affected staff has however, been demoted because of poor supervision.

A total of 438,030 candidates who were writing the 2015 BECE were cancelled by WAEC after it had discovered a massive public concern over the leakage of the papers ahead of the examination.


They are Papers 2 of English Language, Religious and Moral Education, Integrated Science Mathematics and Social Studies.

This, however, prompted the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) to take over investigations into the leak of five subject papers.

According to the Head of National Office of WAEC, Very Rev. Samuel Nii Nmai Ollennu, "Alongside the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) investigations, WAEC also set up its own investigative committee to look into the matter and identify places where security was breached and the culprits involved. The WAEC committee completed its work and from their findings three officers were found to have gone against some of the critical security regulations.


"Out of this three, two of them have been dismissed for breach of the security regulations and one has been demoted," he said.
