Deficit In The Money Spent On WAEC Exam

 Official reveals how WAEC spent N1.5bn to conduct 2020 WASSCE

The WAEC boss said that council is not a revenue-generating body but an assessment body that collects money to conduct examinations for students, stressing that money collected from candidates does not belong to WAEC but service providers. The council head said WAEC was currently having a deficit of N7 billion, adding that the council was not fully funded. He pleaded that the 2020 budget should be fully released to the council as money collected from candidates was not enough to conduct the examinations. Ihonvbere, however, queried the council for its revenue generation drive and urged it to emulate the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. (NAN)

It was reported that this was disclosed in a tweet through its Twitter handle, @waecnigeria on Friday, November 6.

WAEC authorities said it is part of their plan to accommodate all candidates to participate in the examination. It also apologised to the Ekiti state government over the delay in the release of the 2020 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination results. The examination body, however, dismissed the insinuations that the results of candidates from public schools in the state were put on hold owing to a huge accumulated debt owed by the Ekiti government.
