According to what he said in his own words: “As you are aware, the council has successfully conducted the May/June 2017 WASSCE and is working assiduously to ensure that the results are released on schedule.

“One again, as you aware, many state of the federation, as part of their education policy, pay the registration fees of candidates for the WASSCE, particularly in their public schools. This is quite commendable as it has afforded many indigent students the opportunity to sit for our examinations and relieve many poor parents of this financial burden.

“However, this obviously good gesture has come at a price to the council. As I speak to you now, we are cash-strapped as a result of the delay in off-setting the registration fees owed the council by some states. As a result, we are finding it difficult in meeting our financial obligation, particularly to our supervisors, examiners and service providers.

“A total number of 19 states in the country are owing the council in respect of entry fees for state government sponsored candidates for the May/June 2017 WASSCE. Some states also still owe the council registration fees for the May/June 2017/18 WASSCE.

“We have written to the affected states governments without any response. The poor response of debtor states is threatening the smooth operations of the council. We, therefore, want to publicly plead with the affected states to off-set the registration fees of their candidates as soon as possible, as we cannot guarantee that the results of their candidates for the May/June 2016 WASSCE will be released along with others.’’ Speaking further on the debt issue, the HNO said the council wrote to the affected states six months ago and only one responded but crave the indulgence of the press to withhold the names of the 19 states involved.

Mr. Charles, however, warned that at the expiration of the two weeks ultimatum for the affected states to off-set the debt, he would be forced to make the names public when releasing the results of the May/June 2016 WASSCE.

After more questions was pressed further by newsmen to reveal names of the affected states, Mr. Eguridu explained that the states owing the council over N4billion cut-across the six geo-political zones noting ‘’we want to give the states benefit of doubt. You know some of these states have new governors. So, we want to give the new governors some time to off-set the registration fees for their candidates’’.

Continuing to speak, he said, ‘’when the states requested to be granted credit, we allowed them. It has been the practice for a long time. WAEC does not have another avenue to source for funds to run its operation. We are still owing many of our examiners and supervisors because of the non payment by the 19 states’’.

Mr. Charles traced the debt situation to the current melt down affecting the states and hoped the old/new governors would pay the May/June 2016 WASSCE registration fees to avert the withholding of their candidates results.

Mr. Charles who is HNO assured parents and that the over 1.2 million candidates that sat for the May/June 2016 WASSCE would have their results released in two weeks time, even as he praised the examiners, supervisors and WAEC staff for ensuring the successful conduct and marking of the answer scripts within the stipulated time.

Mr. Charles Eguridu used the opportunity to inform Nigerians that the council discovered two fake website that post fake questions to attract candidates thereby defrauding them of huge sum of money.  He said the website syndicate operate from Badagry and Ekpoma.

According tonews from sunnewsonline.com, The WAEC boss revealed that those involved in the fake website to deceive candidates were arrested and are being prosecuted.
