AEI Decries poor WAEC results, tasks students on academic excellence
A Non- governmental organisation, Academic Excellence Initiative (AEI) has dercried students’ poor performance in the just released January/February diet of the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
The organisation stated this at a counselling seminar it organise to prepare students writing the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Sagamu, Ogun State.
Speaking at the seminar, a public affairs analyst and life coach, Mr Jubril Olukayode Lasisi lamented the poor performance by Nigerian students in WAEC exam in recent years, calling on all stakeholders to come to the rescue.
Mr Lasisi who is also the Director, Pride of Faith Academy, Sagamu urged the students to double their effort and come with distinction in their examinations.
He called on the state government to rescind its decision on the stoppage of payment of WAEC fee for students in the state stating that many indigent students whose parents may not be able to pay for their children would missed out of the examination thereby hindering their academic pursuit.
