In a letter dated 5th November 2020, WAEC’s Branch Controller, Alhaji Olajide Hakeem, refuted claims that the government of Ekiti was not the cause of the delay and is not indebted to the council.

This comes after rumours circulated that the council delayed, which has now been released on Thursday, because Gov, Kayode Fayemi-led Ekiti govt. owed the a huge debt.

The letter addressed to the Commissioner for Education, Dr. Olabimpe Aderiye, reads: “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 Council wishes to state clearly that 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 5.45pm on Wednesday.

“We condemn in its entirety any attempt by anybody or group making 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.
