During Friday’s screening, one of the nominees, Abolaji Dada, said she had not been able to access her result from the West African Review Board (WAEC).

Dada claimed to have submitted for the WAEC exam in 1984, but that no certificate was issued in the indicated year.

“I took my WAEC exam at a government school, so I felt it would not be difficult to access it, but eventually I made an effort to retrieve my certificate when the need arose, but they told me that my school’s data was not captured.

“My claim can be verified that my 1984 WAEC certificate for my school was not accessible,” he said.
