West African Examinations Council, WAEC has said that hundreds of candidates who sat for the May/June examination may not have their results released in the next two weeks.
The council said no fewer than 19 states in the country owe about N4bn examination registration fees.
Mr. Charles Eguridu, the Head of WAEC National Office, announced this on Monday at a briefing in Lagos.
However, he failed to mention the affected states.
Eguridu said, “We have written to the affected state governments without any response. The poor response of the 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 2015 will be released along with others.”
Meanwhile the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has sued the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the University of Lagos (UNILAG) for setting high cut-off marks for candidates seeking admission into the institution.
