Some commented in denial of the Minister’s statement and presume it to be fake whiles others believes it to be true.
Below are some of the comments:

“Dis wan wae u gi we e sober? Like I could interpret this inform in 999 ways” one commentator said.

“Keep up the Good Work, continue to provide the environment for them to be successful” another said.

“if WAEC as the examination body refused to release soft copies of past exams, I am doubting the reality of this statement” another one said.

“Don’t also forget that Waec refuse to submit the soft copies of the results for better analysis to the ministry
Which I will be expecting a repeat of the situation for 2022 results if no better reason was given for the first situation…Just in the name of money making they succeeded in halting the sms results checker. They are very wicked…….” another commentator said.

“keep it up sir you the best”another said.

“Too many discrepancies that nulled the quality and credibility of the entire exams. Am expecting you to even be this bold bragging about good results. People I personally got credit they can’t defend an iota, the other science student got credit on a subject he didn’t sit… How Salone Go Better Pan Such Fictitious Education??? Another one said.

Minister Sengeh however, has not said a word but rather chooses to be silent over the comments.
