The West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) marked its 67th Anniversary on Tuesday, March 19.

In the light of the celebration, the examination umpire has announced preparations to review workers’ salaries as part of measures to motivate them.

The WAEC’s Director in Nigeria, Mr Olutise Adenipekun, said that a committee to review staff salary has been set-up.

“The report of the committee is being considered; we want better packages for our staff in spite of the council’s dwindling resources.

“The council’s achievements over the years would have been impossible without the cooperation and dedication of staff and other stakeholders.

He urged the staff to be prudent in resources management, stressing that there was a need to adopt strict fiscal discipline to avoid wastage.

“We should embrace transparency and accountability in all our dealings. We must remember that WAEC has zero tolerance for corruption,” he added.
