The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) results of the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno are now available, according to Nigerian Education Minister, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau.

This was reportedly disclosed by the minister during a meeting with the House of Representatives Committee on Education yesterday, September 15, 2014.

According to reports, Shekarau said:

 “By 1pm today (Monday), the president has scheduled a meeting, which I am attending, specifically to address some of the issues of girls’ education in that troubled zone (Nigeria’s North East).

“In fact, this morning, I got a communication from West African Examinations Council. The result of the Chibok Secondary School is out,”

“We (the ministry) have to look at it (the results) vis-a-vis the security situation and implication, before the formal release. It is right now in my possession, because when the abduction took place, some remained, completed their exams. Some were taking exam and they were abducted. So, the result is haphazard. So we are addressing that this afternoon.

Over 200 girls were kidnapped from the Chibok school in April 2014 and most of them are still missing.
