During a press conference in Accra, John Kapi, WAEC’s Head of Public Affairs, addressed the anxieties raised by stakeholders regarding the Council’s financial capacity to conduct the exams.

He confirmed that the government had recently paid GH₵55.8 million of the debt, which is sufficient to ensure the smooth execution of the BECE.

Kapi reassured, “On July 4th, we began dispatching staff to the examination centers to prepare and organize the exams.

With the recent funds received from the government, we are confident in our ability to conduct the exams as planned.” He also mentioned that WAEC is planning for additional funds to be released soon, ensuring the completion of the examination process and the timely release of results.
