In a state­ment signed by Abio­dun Adu­loju, Head of WAEC’s Pub­lic Af­fairs Depart­ment at In­ter­na­tional Of­fice, Ac­cra, Ghana, the three Ghana­ian stu­dents emerged win­ners of the award out of the 2,109,122 can­di­dates that sat for the ex­am­i­na­tion in Gam­bia, Ghana, Nigeria and Liberia.

“The Coun­cil hon­oured three can­di­dates with the WAEC In­ter­na­tional Ex­cel­lence Award for their out­stand­ing per­for­mance in the May/June 2013 WASSCE. They are Miss Ivy Ama Man­noh (1st Prize), Miss Rhoda Adu-Boafo (2nd Prize) and Mas­ter Mwin­maarong Lu­cio Dery (3rd Prize).
