Students of Lagos State public schools are yet to access their results, two weeks after the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) released results of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
A source from the Lagos State Ministry of Education, who pleaded anonymity, told The Nation that the non-release of the result, may not be unconnected to the non-completion of the payment of the examination fees by the Lagos State government.
The Lagos State government pays the WASSCE fees for SS3 pupils of its public schools “Some public school students have not seen their results because the process to pay the money was incomplete. But they are working on it,” the source said.
However, the Head of Public Affairs, WAEC, Demianus Ojijeogu, insisted the result had been released. “It has been released. The result is online already. You can quote me,” he said in a phone chat.
