WAEC Explains Why Prisoners Should Partake In Examination.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says it is ready to partner with relevant key stakeholders in the education sector in assisting prison inmates to have easy access to education.

The council’s Head of National Office (HNO), Mr. Olutise Adenipekun, told the Journalists on Wednesday in Lagos that such collaboration would enhance the inmates’ transformation and development.

Adenipekun said there is life after prison, adding that there is need to encourage the inmates to acquire education.

“Education in the prisons is an area I am passionate about as a key stakeholder in the education sector.

“If anyone should find himself or herself behind the bars, that does not mean the end of the world for such.

“So, WAEC as an organisation, has brought into the vision that behind the bars life must continue.

“Because after getting out of prison, they still come back to the society to carry on with normal life.

“That is why we should partner those organisations that may want to assist the inmates to access education and other external examinations such as the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates,” he said.
