THE Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL), ha condemned plans by IPOB to disrupt the West African Examination Council (WAEC) examination of over 300,000 students in the Southeast.

Mr Goodluck Ibem, President-General, COSEYL, who expressed his displeasure on Wednesday in Awka, said the WAEC examination remained the future of the students.

Recall that the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), directed WAEC to postpone the General Mathematics (Theory and Objectives), scheduled for May 30, the day IPOB designated as ‘Biafra Heroes Day’.

The group planned to disrupt the ongoing WAEC examination on May 30 if their directive was not obeyed.

Ibem said that WAEC is an international exam that cut across many countries and it would be gross insensitivity to disrupt same.

He said that WAEC board had made it clear that it would not postpone or shift the date of the mathematics exams.

According to him, it is an act of wickedness for any individual or group to stop students from writing their exams while students from other parts of the country are writing.

“It is pure act of wickedness on our own people, especially the poor students who may have been assisted by good spirited individuals to register for the exams.

“Any order aimed at suffering and inflicted pain on our people amounts to shooting one’s leg.

“Students in the Southeast should not be disturbed from writing their WAEC exams. This exams is their future.

“We, therefore, call on IPOB to cancel any arrangement that will derail or stop our students from writing this examination tomorrow.
