PDP blasts Aregbesola over WAEC fees

03 August 2015, 18:17

Osun - The Osun State Chapter of the People's Democratic Party has blasted Governor Rauf Aregbesola to pay money owed to the West African Examination Council, PremiumTimes reported.

This comes after the people who took the examinations could not receive their certificates because money was still owed to the WAEC.

According to PDP Spokersperson, Diran Odeyemi, if the money is not paid that will jeopardize chances of other students awaiting for their results to get admissions to further their education.

Therefore the party further states that if Aregbesola can no longer run free the free education programme he inherited from the PDP then he should shy away from declaring free education in the state.

Due to government owing the WAEC large amounts of money, money to buy practical specimens cannot be bought.
