The non-profit-making organization (WAEC) says it will at the appropriate time respond to the lawsuit filed by Mr Kofi Asare the Executive Director of the African Education Watch, against the marking of 2020 WASSCE scripts.

The Executive Director of the education think thank on social media announced his outfit has sued the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) for contracting Examiners whose details had leaked on the public domain to mark the 2020 WASSCE scripts of the prospective candidates.

According to the Education Watch, the Examination Council’s decision to employ the service of such Examiners goes against international best practices and will also compromise the marking process of the scripts.
