Governors, WAEC meet over WASSCE results

The leadership of the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, and that of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum are expected to address the public on Wednesday on the likely middle ground so far reached between the two parties over the alleged indebtedness of 13 states to the examination body.

This is even as WAEC failed in its pledge to make the results of other candidates of the 2015 May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examinations, WASSCE, available on its web page more than 24 hours after it announced the release of the results.

The Head of Nigeria Office of the examination body, Mr. Charles Eguridu, had on Monday told the media that the candidates were free to check the Council’s web page for their results within 24 hours of the announcement.

The delay in the release of the result might not, therefore, be unconnected with the ongoing discussions between the leadership of the governors’ forum and WAEC over the fate of the governmentsponsored candidates in 13 states the body classified as ‘indebted.’

WAEC Deputy Director, Public Affairs, Lagos, Mr. Yusuf Ari, hinted that WAEC, which will be led by Eguridu will this afternoon hold a joint media briefing with the Director General of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Asishana Okauru, to intimate the public on the new development over the crisis of indebtedness rocking the two parties.

According to Ari, the details of the briefing were still sketchy, but he confirmed that the leadership of WAEC was already in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, to hold the joint briefing.

It would be recalled that WAEC had on Monday insisted that unless the indebted 13 states endeavour to produce bank guarantees, the results of government- sponsored candidates of those states would not be released.
