About one month after the West African Examination Council (WAEC) released the results of candidates who sat for its November/December examination, the fate of over 70,000 students in Kano State is still hanging in the balance.
Daily Trust gathered that WAEC decided to withhold their results over the State government’s failure to settle their registration fees as earlier promised.
This, Daily Trust learned, has made most of the affected candidates stranded, especially those seeking admission into higher institutions with awaiting results.
A source in WAEC said the examination body has vowed to hold on to the results until the State government settles the registration fees.
When Daily Trust correspondent contacted the State’s Commissioner for Education, Muhammad Sanusi Sa’id Kiru, he said he would speak on the issue on Wednesday evening.
Daily Trust reports that WAEC, on January 2021, released results of 1,209,992 candidates who sat for the examination across the country.
A total of 894,101 candidates scored credits in English and Mathematics.
