The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has dispelled rumours that its website has been hacked.
Social media reports suggest that the council’s website has been taken over by hackers but a letter signed by the head of Public Affairs at WAEC, Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, at the weekend, urged the public to disregard such claim describing it as “false.”
“The Council wishes to alert members of the public to a false news article circulating on social media purportedly issued by WAEC about the hacking of the WAEC website. The public is urged to disregard the contents of the said article,” the statement added.
Some four persons had earlier been busted in Nigeria for allegedly hacking WAEC website.
