15 'Born Again Christians' Return Certificates To WAEC For Cheating During Exam by JECBOSS: 3:29am On Jan 04, 2014
■ 15 now Born Again Christians
return certificates to examination
body
By GABRIEL DIKE
In what may come as a big surprise
to most people, no fewer than 15
persons recently returned certificates
issued to them by the West African
Examinations Council (WAEC). They
said they had to give up the
certificates because they cheated
during the examination, and now as
Born Again Christians, they could not
live with “the sin.”
Some individuals, Saturday Sun
gathered, had approached WAEC
through letters seeking restitution
after they had confessed how they
dubiously acquired their certificates
when they wrote the examinations at
various periods.
The council wrote back to them,
stating that what they were expected
to do was to return the certificates
awarded in line with the rules and
regulations guiding the conduct of the
examinations. However, only few
responded, including a holder of
Teachers’ Grade 11 certificate.
It was learnt that those who complied
with the directive returned their
certificates to various WAEC offices
nationwide and the council took their
case to the Nigeria Examinations
Committee (NEC), which, at its 55th
meeting in Lagos, cancelled the
returned 15 certificates.
According to the council’s letter to
NEC, “the listed candidates, in their
letters of restitution, confessed that
they were involved in various forms of
examination malpractices in various
years as indicated against their
numbers. They have returned the
original certificates issued to them.’’
The returned certificates by the Born
Again Christians were for both the
May/June (school exam) and
November/December (private
candidate) West African Senior
School Certificate Examination
(WASSCE).
A breakdown of the year the
examinations were taken revealed
that the oldest dates back to June
1983 with certificate no SG 288999.
Next is June 1990 (RS0680084c),
June 1992 (NGSS 0994156), June
1995 (NGSS0265147) and December
1995 (NGSP 0169397), December
1996 (NGSP 0575264), December
2000 (NGWASSCP 038771), June
2001 (NGWASSCS 2451037).
Others are June 2002, two certificates
with NGWASSCP 4100224 and
NGWASSCS 3894794 were returned
and cancelled, June 2003
(NGWASSCS 5009313), June 2006
two born again Christian returned
certificates with NGWASSCP 7747466
and NGWASSCS 8423755, December
2008 (NGWASSCP 05790031) and
June 2010 NGWASSCP 13327157.
There are several Verses in the Bible
to support restitution, which conform
to what the 15 Born Again Christians
did by confessing their sins and
sought restitution from WAEC. In 1
John 1:9 says: “If we confess our
sins, the is faithful and just to forgive
us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness’’.
While Numbers 5:6-7 says ’’When a
man or woman commits any of the
sins that people commit by breaking
faith with the Lord, and that person
realizes his guilt, he shall confess his
sin that he has committed. And he
shall make full restitution for his
wrong’’. Efforts to get the names, and
perhaps pictures, of the 15 persons
were abortive, as WAEC officials said
it would amount to violation of the
rights of the individuals involved and
that of their (officials) ethics.
In a related development, the N55th
and 56th NEC meeting of WAEC has
hammered 493 candidates who sat
for both the May/June and
November/December WASSCE by
ordering the cancellation of their
certificates/result slips taken at
various periods.
A document available to Saturday
Sun reads partly: “The under listed
candidates were confirmed to have
been impersonated in the various
examinations and years indicated
against them. The result slips/
certificates have been returned by the
Zonal/Branch Offices concerned to
the Post Examinations Department
for cancellation.’’
A breakdown of the statistics revealed
that at the 55th NEC meeting (result
slips and certificates of
impersonators in previous GCE/SSC/
WASSC examinations), no fewer than
241 candidates were sanctioned
while at their 56th deliberation (result
slips and certificates of
impersonators in previous May/June
and November/December WASSC
examinations), a total of 252
candidates had their certificates
cancelled according to the rules and
regulations guiding the conductor of
WAEC exams.
A remarkable thing which Saturday
Sun noted in the 55th NEC meeting
decision was that the 241 cancelled
certificates involved private
candidates who wrote either the Nov/
Dec GCE or WASSCE. Thus
confirming stakeholders’ position
that exam fraud is more rampart
during the private candidate
examinations.
A breakdown of the 241 cancelled
certificates revealed that the highest
number occurred in 1998 (34),
followed by 1999 and 2001 with 26
certificates each. In 2000, it had 24,
1997 (23), 1995 (22), 2002 (19),
1994 and 1996 each had 15, 2003
(14), 1993 (12), 1987 (3), 2005 (2)
while 1985, 1986, 1991, 2006, 2007
and 2009 had one cancelled
certificate each.
For the 56th NEC decision, again
statistics from the document indicate
that majority of the 252 candidates
whose certificates were cancelled sat
for the Nov/Dec WASSCE (240) while
12 others wrote the May/June
WASSCE.
Detail breakdown of the 252
cancelled certificates at the 56th NEC
meeting showed that 2009 recorded
the highest number with 33, 2002
(26), 2007 (24), 2001 (20), 2008 and
2010 had 18 each, 2000 (17), 2004
(14), 1999, 2003 and 2006 had 13
each, 2011 (10), 1995 (eight), 1990,
1992, 1996, 1998 and 2005 recorded
four cancelled certificates each, 1993
and 1997 produced two each and one
in 1989.

Although, I commend their sincerity and restitution but what about other things they've used the certificate to achieve like using it as a criteria to gain admission into higher institutions, as well as using the certificate obtained at the higher institutions to gain employment, are they returning those also?

The cost of following Christ. "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? " (Matthew 16:26). "So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. " (John 21:15).

The oldest and youngest of the returned certificate were acquired 31yrs and 4yrs ago respectively. These guys must have used these same certificates to apply for jobs; gain admission to higher institution of learning; collect salary on jobs given by presenting such fake certificates; use the salary collected to train children, buy cars, build houses etc. Since the foundation of their wealth and achievement might have been laid on those certificate, in the interest of fairness and completeness, they will need to return other things they have acquired back to the owners. Salary to the employers. Higher institution certificates back to the respective schools, since the admission was fraudulently gained via the wrong certificates. Wives back to the owners. Children to . . . . . . . They will then have to start afresh as a born again Christian.

What I'm saying here is that there are a lot of ways of killing a fowl without causing wahala to both party. What about they confess their sins and seek forgiveness from God.

This is taking their belief to the extreme. Why cant they just confess their sin,and seek for forgiveness from God,rather than advertise their stupid1ty.

Can they bear the heat of their actions,if the need arises. why can't they return everything they have used the certificate to achieve too. Afterall legality can't be built on illegality.

Religion is truly the opium of the people.

for forgiveness to be complete, restitution is inevitable. This is why sin is very dangerous. To avoid restitution (which can be shameful), it is better to avoid sin.

Imagine if all Nigerians get born again and those who cheated return their certificates. Oh,lordy lord,80 percent of certificates ever issued by Waec or other bodies 'll be returned. Don't be surprised if Gowon,Obj,Shagari,IBB,Abubakar & even Jonathan return their TC11 or standard six certs. These people should have gone the whole lenght by returning whatever they acquired through the certificate. This is extreme religiosity. ‎​ Na these kind people dey kill for God

Is Cheating the only sin they have commited in their lives? They should return everthing and start afresh.

I don't want to say they are STUPID, although they behave like one, OR say they are FOOLISH, although they are close to being one.
