The question now is, what has inflation and Covid 19 has to do with increasing WAEC fees??............my complain is that when it's comes to increasing workers salary these same set of animals in government power will start stamaring n gives excuses.....but won't hesitate to increase anything including cooking gas,NEPA, fuel money without any consultation. I pray they perish by their acts IJMN. Amen.
