-For Paying WASSCE Fees

By Jackson C. Clay, Jr.

The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) Liberia has hailed President George Weah for the payment of WAEC fees for all senior high school students in the country. 

Speaking Monday when he appeared on Capitol Hill for the ongoing budget hearing by the joint legislative committee on Ways, Means, Finance and Budget committees, WAEC Liberia boss Dale Gbotoe expressed gratitude to President Weah for fulfilling his promised to twelve graders (12th Graders) in the country.

“I would like to commend President George Weah and by extension the Government of Liberia for fully paying the examination fees for all twelve graders that sat the 2017/2018 West Africa Senior High School Certificate Exam (WASSCE).” Gbotoe said.

The WAEC Liberia boss disclosed that WAEC has started the process of refunding all schools that paid their fees prior to payment by President Weah.

However, the WAEC Liberia boss revealed that the entity has two major sources of income generation, the government of Liberia annual allotment and from what he calls internally generated revenue that is the payment of WEAC fees by schools in the country.

He stated that from the government stand point, it represents twenty five percent (25%) while it internally generated revenue represents seventy five percent (75%).

Gbotoe revealed that during the 2017/2018 budget year, WAEC had total revenue of over four million United Sates dollars (US$4M), of which government contributed over one million United States dollars (US$1m) and the internally generated revenue had over three million United States dollars (US$3m).

Gbotoe indicated that due to government allotment to the entity and its internally generated revenue, WAEC was able to successfully administer all of its examination to all schools and candidates in the country.

“As a result of your support Mr. Chairman, Liberia was ably represented to all of our international meetings and we able to acquired additional vehicles to be able to properly do our work across the country,” Gbotoe told the committee.

Meanwhile, the committee has sent the examination body back to return at a later date because its head, Dale Gbotoe could not properly account for funds entrusted the entity for the period under review.
