“If you want to talk to me, come to my office,” WAEC’s boss Sapateh said.  “If  see me fine, but if you don’t that’s your business.”

“I have lot more issues to discuss anyhow.  Thank you…  phone switched off.”

Notwithstanding government’s efforts in the improvement of education, unscrupulous WAEC officials are reportedly engaged in the encouragement of pupils/parents in the payment of money for grades.
