The West African Examinations Council has dismissed a report that its Registrar, Dr. Iyi Uwadiae, made some disparaging remarks about the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun.


The council, in a statement, on Wednesday said it found the story “embarrassing”.
Reports on Tuesday claimed that the registrar faulted the minister’s presentation during her budget defence at the National Assembly last week and so offered her “a free chance to resit her Mathematics examination.”
WAEC Head, Public Affairs in Ghana, Mr. Abiodun Aduloju, said the story was aimed to cause disaffection between the council and the government of Nigeria.
He added, “The publication is worrisome and embarrassing to WAEC, as the registrar did not make the statement credited to him and could not have responded as purported to an allegation in which the name of his organisation was not mentioned.
“The registrar does not reside in Nigeria and has not granted a press interview or engaged in an informal chat with any Nigerian media representative or authorised anyone to speak on his behalf concerning the minister’s statement.
“Uwadiae is an experienced public personality and a seasoned diplomat, who holds sacrosanct the entrenched culture of mutual understanding and respect that exists among all operatives and representatives of the governments of the five member countries of the council.”
