Areghan blamed some dubious supervisors for some of the malpractices during the examination.
He disclosed that the standing rule of WAEC was to release the examination questions to supervisors an hour before the commencement of the exams, in order to enable them from the point of collection to the administrative point, citing distance in some schools.
