Regarding the WASSCE 2016 results which was withheld, the west African examination board has released a strong statement to back their decision to withhold the result of students from 13 state which took part in the 2016 WAEC examination. Even though this might seem like a very extreme measure by the board, An official
of the council revealed the reason why certain students have to be used as the sacrificial lamb for the negligence from the part of the government of the affected the States.
Mr. Demianus Ojijeogu, who spoke to DailyGists.com.ng said the reason behind the withheld results was mainly monetary issue .

They reneged on the agreement we had during registration. We agreed that they should pay 40 per cent of the registration cost and pay the rest later. We used the payment to offset the backlog because some of them have owed us since 2014″.
“We even told them to give us Advance Payment Guaranty from reputable banks, but one of the states brought a document from a branch of a commercial bank, not even from the headquarters of the bank. We were lenient last year and we released the results. But, if you leave it to some of them, they will not pay for five or 10 years. We will not do that this year. That is our leverage and we cannot go bankrupt because of them,’’ he said
2016 Waec results have since been released , but if you are yet to see your result it means your state might be among the states which WAEC Withheld 2016 results
