    WAEC in this computer age is still making provision on N500.00 per candidate for accredited agents? That’s N250m going into private pockets for just 500,000 candidates.
    In this age of online registration portals? Does the N500 go into the TSA?
    All that is required is to have a portal. Payment into a bank shouldn’t cost the candidate any additional amount. Trust the rogues to carve a means of embezzlement. Why should poor parents bear this unnecessary expense?
