The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has appealed to states that are owning it to pay up their dues, saying that the debtor states are incapacitating it from carrying out its duties effectively.
The Registrar of the council, Dr. Iyi Uwadiae, who made the appeal during his valedictory briefing with journalists via tele-conferencing from Ghana Wednesday, said the council is doing its best not to leave behind any abandoned project.
According to Uwadiae, who will officially bow out of service on September 30, “I intend to leave behind a healthy council and that is why we are appealing to various state governments to pay their dues on time so that we can do the things that we should do.”
He enumerated some of his achievements while in office to include curbing examination malpractices during the conduct of its exams, adding that though it was a tough time even for the member countries in deploying resources, they were able to overcome the fight.
