The West African Examination Council (WAEC) is in the news again. It released the May/June 2015 Senior School Certificate Examination results on Monday, withholding 118,101 candidates’ results out of the 1.5 million students that sat for the examination.
WAEC Head of National Office, Mr. Charles Eguridu, announced this in Lagos at a press conference on Monday.
Eguridu added that the states owing WAEC had reduced to 13, saying the candidates in public schools in the 13 states would not have their results until their state governments pay their candidates’ registration fees.
The examination body had raised the alarm that 19 states owed the agency about N4bn, an amount that might cripple the operations of WAEC.
But some of the affected states have been making moves to settled their indebtedness to WAEC.
