The Head of the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC), Mr. Olutise Adenipekun has said that the council will soon review the salaries of its workers as part of measure to motivate them towards optimal productivity.
The WAEC boss, who spoke on Tuesday in Lokoja, at a ceremony to mark the council’s 67th anniversary, said the management had set up a committee to review staff salaries.
“The report of the committee is being considered; we want better packages for our staff in spite of the council’s dwindling resources,” he said.
According to him, WAEC’s achievements over the years would have been inpossible without the cooperation and dedication of staff and other stakeholders.
“Management believes that it is important to sustain an effective and efficient workforce through regular staff training and re-training. This will be vigorously pursued during this fiscal year,” Adenipekun stated.
He urged all WAEC staff to be prudent in resources management, stressing that there was need to adopt strict fiscal discipline to avoid wastage.
“We should embrace transparency and accountability in our dealings. We must remember that the council has zero tolerance for corruption,” he added.
