The Ebira Youths Congress, EYC, has decried the low enrolment of Ebira students for the 2022 West African Examinations Council, WAEC due to financial difficulties.
The President of EYC, Obiyo Ateiza Aliyu in a press statement made available to ebirareporters.com expressed worry that the students could not afford registration for the examination which serves as a gateway into “the world of all levels of higher education and career.”
The apex youth body in Ebiraland disclosed according to its findings, that 2022 holds the record of lowest enrolment in history, thereby appealing for swift intervention before registration closes.
“These affected candidates have become considerably distracted and emotionally taken aback as the grassroot bleats over the scary aura of such circumstance.
“Too sad a finding to reveal an all time record lowest of enrolment in history this 2022, which 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.”
