Association of Christian Schools in Nigeria, ACSN, has threatened that all Christian schools in the country would withdraw from participating from future West African Examination Council, WAEC, exams if the examination body carries out its recent decision to disqualify Christian schools from participating in the supervision of the forthcoming WAEC examinations on the ground of malpractices.

President of the association, Dr. Ekaete Ettang, made this known while addressing newsmen in Jos on Thursday.

“Following the recent decision by the West African Examination Council to disqualify Christian schools from participating in the supervision of the forthcoming WAEC examinations on grounds of malpractices while still using some of our schools as custodian centres, we the members of the Association of Christian schools in Nigeria met on the 21st of March 2018 at St. Johns College Jos, Plateau state and we call on WAEC and ministries of education to provide statistics to show the trends in the examination malpractices across the schools which forms the basis of their decision.

“The Christian schools demand that laws and legislations that prohibit teachers from Christian schools from supervising WAEC examinations be made available as they have been participating in this process over the years based on written communications that are on record,” she said

“As a group we say the stigmatisation of teachers from Christian schools as cheats is most unacceptable to us and we therefore demand that WAEC reverses this decision forth with and tenders a public apology to the Christian schools for this misrepresentation.

“If WAEC does not reverse this decision and planned implementation, all Christian schools would boycott future WAEC examinations,” Ettang further said

The meeting agreed that WAEC should be involving all stakeholders in the planning, conduct of exams, resolving all the issues affecting the process as well as in the final decisions on related matters for ownership and collective wisdom, ACSN is willing to make positive contribution as key stakeholders in this regard.

The group further said that given the historical contribution of Christian education towards Nigeria educational system and development of the society, disqualifying Christian teachers from supervising WAEC contradicts what we rightfully deserve and which has done irreparable damage to their reputation, character, integrity and identity as a group.

“In view of this, the Association of Christian schools demand that WAEC cancels the order and reverts to status quo where credible teachers from Christian schools in Nigeria were involved in the supervision of WAEC examinations as failure to do so all Christian schools nation while will withdraw from future WAEC examinations.” (Nigerian Pilot)
