No fewer than 30 schools have been delisted in Benue State by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) over examination malpractices.
The state Commissioner for Education, Prof. Dennis Ityavya, disclosed this to newsmen on Saturday.
According to Ityavya, some of the affected schools are private adding that some of the schools have had their results withdrawn.
“Let me inform the public that WAEC has delisted 30 schools in the state and most of them are private schools, some of them have had their results withdrawn by the body for examination malpractices.”
The commissioner noted that the state government had also listed over one thousand schools, both primary and post-primary, for shutdown.
Recall that about 2,300 illegal primary and post-primary schools were closed in 2018 by the state government.
Ityavya, who decried the proliferation of illegal schools in the state, said officials of the ministry alongside security operatives, would move round the state to shut down the illegal schools.
