Reading time: 1 Minute


The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has appointed Dr. Amos Dangut as its new Head of National Office (HNO).

Until his appointment as council’s head, he was the Deputy Registrar of the office of the HNO.

His appointment came on the heels of the expiration of the tenure of the council’s immediate past HNO, Mr Patrick Areghan.

This was contained in a statement by Acting Head of Public Affairs, Moyosola Adesina.

It was gathered that Areghan, who bowed out of office on Oct. 1, came on board as HNO on March 5, 2020.

Adesina said he joined the council in 1998 as an Assistant Registrar (AR) II and rose through the ranks to become a Deputy Registrar in April 2018.

She said that Dangut won the Nigeria Examinations Committee’s (NEC) commendation for transparent conduct of examination between 2000 and 2006.

According to her, for the past 25 years, the newly appointed HNO leveraged Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to innovatively improve processes in Test Development, Test Administration and Post Test Activities.

She added that Dangut, an astute scholar with various educational publications in international and national journals, had also presented numerous keynotes and other papers at international and national conferences/fora.
