WAEC Withholds Results of Candidates From 8 States as 79% Obtain Credits In Maths, English 

THE results of students from eight states of the federation that sat for the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE, have been withheld by the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, over the indebtedness of the states to the council.“This was disclosed at a press briefing on Monday in Lagos by the Head of National Office, Mr Patrick Areghan, while giving details of the results of the examination concluded 44 days ago.

This has positively impacted the prompt release of the result in focus, despite all the inconveniences encountered on the field such as insecurity, non-adherence to registration deadlines, financial issues, inflation, and rogue website operators.

“Zamfara and Niger states are the highest debtors,” Areghan stated. “Furthermore, Zamfara did not present any candidates for this year’s WASSCE. Candidates who have fulfilled their financial obligations to the Council can access their results on the Council’s website: After accessing their results, candidates can visit to confirm, share, and download digital copies of their certificates. Copies of the Result Listing will be sent to schools shortly.
