WAEC Withholds 15,000 SSCE Results

WAEC Withholds 15,000 SSCE Results
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has withheld the results of over 15,000 candidates that sat for the May/June senior school certificate examinations.

The affected candidates are from Niger State.

The decision to hold on to the results was reportedly because the state government failed to pay the examination fees on behalf of the candidates.

Non-indigenes that sat for the examination paid their registration fees of about N14,000 each to the Ministry of Education following the state government’s decision to pay for only the indigenes.

However, the payments made by the non-indigenes were not remitted to WAEC, according to Thisday.

It was gathered that over N750 million was owed WAEC by both indigene and non-indigene candidates that sat for the examination.

The situation is a repeat of last year’s stalemate.

In 2016, WAEC and National Examinations Council (NECO), withheld results of candidates from Niger State.

The councils had explained that they took the action because the state government failed to remit fees to the examination body.
