Reacting, one online user, simply expressed, “Scam of the highest order,so it took WAEC several years to confirm ordinary result?”

This thing is becoming messier, see desperation and corruption fighting back, Buhari and APC are doing everything to sustain their lies. I suggest that Buhari should resign so that the party will have a lifeline or else the party may loss everything.
