Only Buhari can apply for his result verification- WAEC

The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, has said that General Muhammadu Buhari  can apply to the examination body for the verification of his results. It said such verification can only be forwarded to the institution specified by the candidate.

WAEC Deputy Director, Public Affairs, Lagos, Mr. Yusuf Ari in a telephone conversation with Vanguard Wednesday said, “No individual has the legal right to approach WAEC for the verification of another person’s result except the owner of the result.”

He explained that the constitutional right vested on the Freedom of Information law does not include invasion of privacy adding, “The certificate in question belongs to Muhammadu Buhari and he alone has the right to apply for verification.
“Be that as it may, WAEC cannot take any action except, the owner of the certificate asked us to do so. We are an independent body, therefore, we cannot be partisan on this issue,” he said.

According to Ari, all the former Head of State needs to do is to apply by given WAEC the name of his school, Examination number and year of the examination and the result will be verified.

However, after verification of the results, it will be forwarded to the institution and not the owner of the results.
