Following the receipt of a report of investigations by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) that cancelled the 2018 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) results of some schools and derecognised the schools for two years with effect from 2019 on the grounds of alleged exam malpractice,the Edo State Government has suspended 28 principals of public senior secondary schools in the state.
 
This was made known by Emmanuel Agbale, the commissioner for Education who in a  memo to the state's Permanenet Secretary, Ministry of Education also stated that 28 private schools face the threat of being deregistered or de-recognised for the same crime.

The commissioner also said that warning letters were issued to 16 private schools and 7 other principals of public senior secondary schools were reprimanded while the suspended principals will remain suspended until they are summoned before the Teachers Disciplinary Committee.
