Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration’s transformational policies in the education sector have been said to be responsible for the recent ranking of Enugu State as first among public secondary schools that presented candidates for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) examination in Nigeria, in 2021.

According to recent data released by WAEC and the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), published by StatiSense on its verified Twitter handle, Enugu came first in the ranking of the pass rate among public secondary schools that sat for the examination across the country, recording 93.9 per cent.

Enugu has also ranked the second best-performing state in Nigeria in the same examination with 92.7 per cent.

Reacting to the development, State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Uche Eze, in a statement, commended Ugwuanyi for his dexterity and commitment to quality education in the state.
