Ebira Youth Congress (EYC) has expressed concerns over the low enrollment of students in Kogi Central senatorial district for the 2022 West African Examination Council (WAEC).
A statement signed by EYC President-General, Obiyo Ateiza Aliyu, said 2022 enrollment for WAEC is lowest in history of Kogi Central.
Aliyu attributed the inability of eligible students to enroll for the examination to economic challenges faced by parents and guardians.
He called for immediate grassroot intervention.
“WAEC is a gateway certificate into the world of all levels of higher education and career. These affected candidates have become considerably distracted and emotionally taken aback as the grassroot bleats over the scary aura of such circumstance.
“This has consequently triggered our push for immediate grassroot intervention to this effect, as WAEC registration closure jingles in not too many days away.
“EYC beckons to our leaders of thought and very significantly, our intending political aspirants to utilize this window of opportunity to practically display some level of responsibility to prove to the people whom they already claim to want to serve and show some love.
Education is the hallmark of development in our place, and to think of how key is such exit certificate calls for urgent serious concerns. You shall not be forgotten in a hurry for wading in with rapt intervention. And hopefully enough that, posterity would be fair to your name,” he said.
