CRSG Offsets WAEC Fees For 16, 301 Indigenes


The Cross River State Executive Council has approved the payment of WAEC fees for 16, 301 indigenes of public schools in the state.

The State Government will be offsetting the payment with N440, 127, 000 being for students writing the Senior Secondary School Certificate examination.

This was contained in a statement by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Emmanuel Ogbeche made available to some newsmen in Calabar on Wednesday.

Governor Bassey Otu said the present economic situation characterized by high cost of living requires some palliative measures in the education sector to ameliorate the hardship of parents in meeting the educational responsibilities of their children and wards.

The Governor however warned against any untoward practice such as padding by school authorities of the list of beneficiaries.

It will be recalled that pupils and students of the state origin in public and secondary schools in the state enjoy free tuition.
