Minister of education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has urged the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to reduce its registration fee.
Adamu made the call on Monday when he received WAEC’s governing council, led by the chairperson, Evelyn Kandakai in Abuja.
He said reviewing its registration fee and process will give equal opportunities to secondary school leavers, stating that many parents and guardians complain about the exorbitant fees charged by the council.
Minister of state for education, Anthony Anwukah, also commended WAEC’s contributions to the development of education in Nigeria and other member countries, namely Ghana, Gambia, Sierra-Leone and Liberia.
WAEC’s governing council chairperson Kandakai responding, acknowledged Nigeria’s outstanding contributions toward the sustenance of WAEC over the years.
