WAEC to Withhold Results of Students in 19 States Over Outstanding Debts



African Students

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has vowed not to release the results of students who sat for the May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in 19 states, over outstanding debts.

According to Punch, “No fewer than 19 states of the federation owe the council about N4 billion examination registration fees.”

WAEC Head of National Office, Lagos, Charles Eguridu, announced the news during a press briefing on Monday. He stated:

“A total number of 19 states in the country owe the Council in respect of entry fees for state government sponsored candidates for the May/June 2015 WASSCE. Some states also still owe the Council registration fees for the May/June 2014 WASSCE.

We have written to the affected state governments without any response. The poor response of the debtor states is threatening the smooth operations of the Council.

We, therefore, want to publicly plead with the affected states to off-set the registration fees of their candidates as soon as possible, as we cannot guarantee that the results of their candidates for the May/June 2015 will be released along with others.”

    Do students pay WAEC fees to the schools? Or do the schools cover the costs? I can’t seem to remember what I did during my time
