How Borno Governor Caused Kidnap Of School Girls In Chibok – WAEC

Fresh revelations have emerged that suggest that the kidnap of over 200 students of Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok might not have happened if the Borno State Government had heeded the advice of the West African Examination Council, WAEC.

According to the the head of WAEC’s National Office in Nigeria, Charles Eguridu, the examination body had informed Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State about the poor security situation in the state and declined to conduct its Senior School Certificate Examination in unsafe parts of Borno, including Chibok some months ago.

The Educationist added that Gov. Shettima made them to change their decision after he assured them of adequate security measures.

Mr. Eguridu stated this on Friday night at the First Lady’s conference room, Presidential Villa, Abuja while answering questions from several women including the first lady, Patience Jonathan, wives of state governors, female legislators at federal and state levels, and leaders of various women organizations.

The WAEC official reportedly tendered the letters written to the governors of Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe to prove his claim, saying that Mr. Shettima assured the Council, in writing, that adequate security would be provided.

He also told the women about an earlier experience last year when three of its staff were killed while conducting a similar examination in a school along the Yola-Maiduguri road.

He said the tragic incident influenced their decision to ask for all centres in remote areas in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno to be moved to the states’ capitals.

Mr Eguridu added further that the Borno governor, who initially declined transferring the final year students from centres in remote areas like Chibok to the state capital, finally agreed to do so after the kidnap.

The Borno Government is yet to react to WAEC’s claim as at the time of compiling this report.
