Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the West African Examinations Council will today (Monday) release the list of its debtor states, our correspondent has gathered.
The council will also announce the release of the May/June 2015 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
The WAEC Head of National Office, Lagos, Mr. Charles Eguridu, at a briefing in Lagos two weeks ago, had threatened to withhold results of candidates whose states were indebted to the council.
The debtor states, which Eguridu claimed were 19, owed the council N4bn examination registration fees.
According to him, the huge debts were frustrating the operations of the council.
The HNO, who refused to name the debtor states, promised that the council would make the list public after two weeks if they failed to offset the debts.
But a source in the council told our correspondent on Sunday that with the planned release of the May/ June 2015 WASSCE results on Monday, (today), the council had no option but the expose the debtor states.
She said, “The HNO promised to announce names of the defaulting states while releasing the results, so the expectation is normal. It will not be out of place if he makes the announcement on Monday. Except if he wants to tell the public that the states had cleared the debts.”
