Ekiti Govt Pays N546m 2024 WAEC/SSCE Fees Of 16, 269 Students


Ekiti State has approved payment of N546million as West African Examination Council/Senior School Certificate Examination (WAEC/SSCE) fees of 16,269 SS 3 students in public secondary schools in the state.

Part of the amount will also be used to pay for administrative expenses.

The students are those that have registered to sit for the examination this year.

The State Commissioner for Education, Dr Bimpe Aderiye disclosed this in a press statement in Ado-Ekiti.

Aderiye clarified that no public secondary school in the state has been authorized to collect any WAEC registration fees.

The Commissioner cautioned that it would be considered an act of sabotage if officials of any public school in the state request any fees related to the examination.

She further advised parents and guardians against paying any unauthorized fees, emphasizing that such actions undermine the government’s policies and hinder efforts to enhance the socio-economic well-being of the populace.

Aderiye urged all stakeholders to report any requests for unauthorized fees related to the 2024 WAEC examinations to her office, or to the offices of the Permanent Secretaries of Education or the Teaching Service Commission.

She reaffirmed the State Government’s dedication to enhancing the education sector and assured that every effort would be made to attain the set objectives.
