The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has commended the Osun State Government for its prompt payment of examination fees for students in public schools across the state.
 
Deputy Registrar of WAEC, Dr. Olusanya Dacosta, gave the commendation during the 2017 WAEC committee meeting held with the state Commissioner for Education, Mr. Kola
Omotunde-Young, in Osogbo, on Monday.
 
According to Dacosta, Osun State was among the few states which do not owe the examination council any fee.
 
Dacosta, who also lauded the state government for not giving room to examination malpractices during the conduct of examinations, charged teachers in the state to strive hard to always cover the school curriculum before students sit for any external examination.
 
Earlier in his remarks, Omotunde-Young appreciated the examination body for recognising the positive input of the Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola’s administration in the education sector, even as he enjoined the council to do a review of its questions.
 
He urged WAEC to set up more questions that encourage critical and creative thinking, synthesis, analysis, comprehension and functional application of knowledge.
