Ekiti PDP Berates Fayemi For Failure To Pay Students’ WAEC Fees, Secure Release Of Results
The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated Governor Kayode Fayemi for his failure to pay the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) fees of students who sat for the recently-released WASC results, thereby causing a hold in the release of results of public schools in the state.?
?The state’s Publicity Secretary of the party, Raphael Adeyanju, in an announcement in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday, wondered why a government that volunteered to sponsor students for WAEC would not accept the payment of fees a priority.?
Adeyanju said the failure of the governor to pay up the money, a week after the release of the results, had caused parents and students tension and psychological trauma.?
Head of Nigeria’s Office of WAEC, Patrick Areghan, while announcing the results last week, said 10 debtor-states, including Ekiti, should not expect the release of the results of the candidates they sponsored for the examination unless they indicate serious commitment.?
He warned that states sponsoring candidates for the examination must show commitment, willingness, readiness, and ability to pay or redeem their debts.?
Adeyanju said that it could be relatively concluded that the Fayemi administration is paying lip service to the development of education.?
