The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has confirmed it is ready to conduct the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) despite the government’s outstanding debts. The BECE is set to run from July 8 to July 15 at various examination centres nationwide.

Concerns were raised about WAEC’s ability to conduct the exams due to unpaid debts. However, during a press conference in Accra on Friday, WAEC assured the public that they are fully prepared to manage the exams for 569,095 candidates from 19,506 schools.

John Kapi, WAEC’s Head of Public Affairs, stated in an interview with Citi News that the government had paid GH¢55.8 million of the owed amount by July 4, which is sufficient to proceed with the exams.

“We have started dispatching our staff to the examination centres to organize and oversee the exams. The GH¢55.8 million received from the government is enough to conduct the BECE successfully. Plans are also in place to release more funds to complete the process and release the results,” he explained.
