True to its threat few weeks ago, the West African Examination Council has withheld the 2015 WAEC Senior School Certificate Examination results of students of public schools in 13 states following their state government’s failure to pay the fees meant for their registration.
WAEC had on July 27 threatened to withhold the results of public students from 19 states following the failure of their state governments to pay their WAEC registration fee.
Announcing the release of the results in Lagos today August 8th, WAECs head of National Office, Mr. Charles Eguridu, said the number of the states owing WAEC had reduced to 13 as 6 states out of the 19 earlier announced have addressed their debt.
