13 October 2014, 17:28

Maiduguri - The Borno Government has appealed to West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Examination Council (NECO) to release the results of its candidates who sat for the 2014 examinations.

Mohammed Kauji, the Permanent Secretary, state Ministry of Education, made the appeal in Maiduguri while briefing newsmen on Sunday.

"I want to plead with both WAEC and NECO to release the result of Borno candidates who sat for the 2014 examinations.

"This is because the State Government had on September 29 cleared all outstanding fees relating to the examinations.

"We were surprised to hear that the results of our candidates were not displayed on the website of both WAEC and NECO even after making all the payments.

"The situation has created anxiety among the candidates and their parents as they tried to access the results in vain,'' he said.

Kauji commended Governor Kashim Shettima for facilitating the release of funds for the payment of the registration fees.

He called on the two exam bodies to hasten the release of the results to enable interested candidates secure admission into higher institutions.

The scribe also commended parents and the affected candidates for their patience and understanding over the issue.
