Following the rumour that Ekiti State government is owing West African Examination Council, WAEC the council has denied the debt rumour and apologises for the delay in the release of their WASSCE result.

The council released the statement on Thursday, November 5th 2020 in a letter addressed to Ekiti State's Commissioner for Education, Dr Olabimpe Aderiye.

According to the council, the rumour that Ekiti State's WASSCE result was withheld due to the state owing the WAEC board is not true.

It said that the delay was due to the high traffic congestion on their website caused by candidates who were checking their results on Tuesday and Wednesday when the results were newly released.

The council has apologised for the delay and said that the state has a good relationship with them which they respect a lot.

“On behalf of the national office and the entire WAEC, I hereby tender our unreserved apology for the delay that occurred in the release of the Ekiti State public schools’ results, " the letter read.

“The Council wishes to state clearly that, the Ekiti State was not in any way indebted to WAEC.

"However, it should be noted that many candidates from all parts of the country were unable to access their results throughout yesterday(Wednesday) due to the heavy traffic congestion on our side. The results were eventually accessed at 5.45 pm on Wednesday.

“We condemn in its entirety any attempt by anybody or group making a campaign of calumny to achieve any selfish desires on this very sensitive issue.

“Ekiti State government remains one of our very reliable clients, and we cherish the cordial relationship existing between the state and the council, which we intend to keep.

“We regret any inconvenience arising from the delay of results of the Ekiti State public schools.

“Please, accept the warmest assurances of our highest regard,” the letter concluded.
