The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has withheld results of candidates, who sat for the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations, WASSCE, from eight states over non-payment.
WAEC stated this during a press conference on Monday at the Press Briefing Hall, WAEC National Office, Yaba, Lagos State.
The council decries that the inability to pay for services rendered was posing a great challenge in the activities of the examination body.
Responding to a question on the states owing WAEC, the National Officer of WAEC, Mr. Patrick Areghan, said, “About eight states are owing WAEC. We won’t mention them all as some are going to pay.
“However, Zamfara and Niger are the highest debtors. Again Zamfara did not present any candidate for this year’s WASSCE,” Areghan noted.
