If the recent threat release by the West Africa Examinations Council, (WAEC) is anything to go by, then Over Hundreds results of candidates that sat for the May/June 2015 WASSCE will be withhold.

Information reaching us has it that, the West Africa Examinations Council, WAEC has threatened to withhold the results of students in 19 states that sat for the May/June 2015 WASSCE over nonpayment of candidates’ registration fees by their state governments.

Speaking at its national office Yaba, some hours ago, the Head of National Office, HNO, Mr Charles Eguridu said: “The affected states should 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 WASSCE will be released alongside others.”

He said that a total number of 19 states in the country owe the Council in respect of entry fees for states government sponsored candidates for the May/June 2015 WASSCE noting that some States also still owe the Councils registration fees for the May/June 2014 WASSCE. According to him, the 19 states which are indebted to the tune of N4 billion were not making efforts to pay adding that efforts made by the Councils to get the money from them proved abortive, hence WAEC has resolved to make it public.

Eguridu who declined to mentioned names of the indebted states said, he is given them benefit of the debt, stressing that many of the governors have just assumed office. He however urged the indebted states to pay up within the next two weeks. His words: “Many of the states of the federation, as part of their education policy, pay the registration fees of candidates for the WASSCE, particularly in the public schools.

“This is quite commendable as it afforded many indigent students the opportunity to sit our examinations and relieved many poor parents of this financial burden. “As I speak to you now, we are cash-strapped as a result of the delay in off-setting the registration fees owed the Council by some states. As a result, we are finding it difficult in meeting our financial obligations, particularly to our supervisors, examiners and service providers.

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

Waec jst came up wit dier own heart breaking news….The main point is dt Nigeria’s system of education is extremely bad.Anyway,d govt shud strt recording d number of students who myt commit suicide cos of ds new development…Students paid for their waec fees,which implies dt OUR results shud b realeased.D students shudn’t b punished rather the State shud face nd bear d punishment instead of seizing our results….Are we still hoping for a better Nigeria wit d new development?…The ansa is NO!!!…D country shudn’t b bothered wit d increase rate of Crimes in our society cos dey dnt bother abt our FUTURE.
