The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said it would soon approve new allowances paid to examiners toward fulfilment of the council’s mandate.

Head of National Office (HNO), Dr Charles Eguridu, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria said claims by some examiners that the council was not paying them allowances that were commensurate with the volume of works done informed the decision.

“We at WAEC laud our examiners for their commitment, sacrifice, support and contribution to the overall work of the council.

“The work they actually do is of high value to us and they are one of our critical stakeholders. One cannot really say that their complaints are misplaced.

“We appreciate their contributions a lot and wish that we have all the monies to express this appreciation in the much they deserve.

“But the fees we charge are highly subsidised by government. Our fee is not an economic one and to that extent, we are limited in terms of resources at our disposal, to pay examiners.

“I, however, assure them that we are already looking into their complaints with a view to increasing their allowances in the soonest,” Eguridu said.

He said the council would continue to take necessary actions to the benefit of all its stakeholders.
