Some students were shocked to see "INDEBTED" against their 2023 West African Examinations Council (WAEC) West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results when they visited the body's website.
WAEC withheld results from eight states
Findings by YEN.com.gh showed that candidates seeing "INDEBTED" are from states where WAEC withheld their results.
In a press briefing in Lagos on Monday, Areghan was mum on listing all the states owing but mentioned that Zamfara and Niger were the highest debtors. He expressed optimism that some of the states would soon pay up.
“I need to restate that the results of candidates sponsored by states indebted to the Council will not be released now until they pay up. We appeal to them to do so to enable the affected schools/candidates to access their results.”
