The West African Examination Council (WAEC) says it will upload the results of candidates of indebted states in its website in the next 24 hours.

Charles Eguridu, Head, Nigerian National Office, WAEC who  disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja, said council’s decision was as result of intervention from stakeholders.

He said that WAEC’s decision was informed by its determination not to impede the educational progress of any Nigerian child.

According to him, the continued withholding of the results will adversely affect the educational prospects of the affected candidates who require them for admission purposes.

“Our decision is sequel to appeals from our stakeholders, including parents, the All Nigeria Confederation of Principals Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS), notable Nigerians, and other well-meaning citizens.

“Most importantly, the intervention of the Secretariat of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), which we have been informed, is on the directive of the Chairman, NGF,  Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State who directed that NGF will resolve the matter as soon as possible.

“We have decided to hearken to the appeals and review our earlier position; the results are therefore to be uploaded on our results website in the next 24 hours.’’

Eguridu urged the affected states to reciprocate the gesture by paying up so as to enable the council to meet own obligations to its supervisors, examiners, service providers and creditors.
