WAEC: Reprieve for 345 de-recognised Ebonyi schools

He explained that the lifting order followed the payment of an N50 million fine and approval of a request by the State Government for the council to waive a balance of N48m levied on government-owned secondary schools for their involvement in the malpractice.

Nwangele explained that the N500,000.00 fine placed on each of the 147 private and mission secondary schools over the allegation had been reduced to N250,000.00, which would amount to N36.7 million when paid.

He said: “They were able to convene 2nd examination committee meeting to consider the memo from the State Ministry of Education.

“After considering the memo, WAEC waived the 48 million balance.

“They also considered the issue of de-recognisation and said they will not de-recognise Ebonyi schools again. And it will end this year, no more for two years.”
