Ajimobi stops payment of WAEC fees for students


Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has stopped payment of West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) registration fees for students in the Pacesetter State.
This was disclosed in a statement by the State’s Head of Service, Mr. Soji Eniade.
According to the statement, with effect from the 2015/2016 academic session, the State Government would stop any further payment of WAEC registration fees due to the current financial status of the state.
The statement also indicates that students would, henceforth, pay N3,000 annually as Education Development Levy.
It states that the payment, which would be in three instalments of N1,000 per term, would be utilised to complement government’s effort at improving the infrastructure of public secondary schools.
The statement added that the State Government had completed arrangements to partner with interested stakeholders in the management and administration of public secondary schools.
