The dozens of examiners contracted by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to mark the 2017 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) are crying loud, calling on the council to pay their services.
Those affected includes Chief Examiners, Assistant Chief Examiners and Assistant Examiners.
According to one of them who reached out to this medium, they completed the marking assignment since June 12th, 2017 and results are published, yet still they are not paid.
“We were contracted by WAEC to mark the WASSEC exams. We were able to complete marking on the 12th June 2017 but to our dismay, Grade 12 results were published couple of weeks ago by exams council but we as examiners are not yet paid our monies” an affected examiner who wants to remain anonymous said.
He said they have been waiting so long and now running out of patients.
“The Tobaski is around the corner and we really need our monies to support our families” the affected and frustrated examiner told this medium.
He called on the Council’s Banjul office to consider them for they have successfully their services.
