When some students visited the organization’s website, they were astonished to read “INDEBTED” next to their 2023 West African Examinations Council (WAEC) West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results.
WAEC withheld results from eight states
Candidates that saw “INDEBTED” are from states where WAEC delayed their results, according to research by Wothappen.com.
According to Patrick Areghan, the head of the national office, candidates from eight federation states had their WASSCE results delayed because of their debt to the council.
Areghan did not specify all the states owed during a press conference on Monday in Lagos, but he did mention that Zamfara and Niger had the highest debts. He expressed hope that some of the states would make their payments quickly.
“I need to restate that the results of candidates sponsored by states indebted to the Council will not be released now until they pay up. We appeal to them to do so to enable the affected schools/candidates to access their results.”
