…begs them to redeem fees
…says it paid 84,289 ad-hoc staff
Results of some candidates, who sat for the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) conducted by the National Examinations Council (NECO) for schoolbased candidates, are yet to be released due to inability of their state governments to pay the examination fees.
The Registrar/Chief Executive of NECO, Prof Dantani Wushishi, made an appeal to the governments concerned to off-set their bills while briefing newsmen yesterday in Minna, Niger State. He, however, declined mentioning the state governments in question. A statement made available to newsmen in Abuja by NECO’s Head, Information and Public Relations Di-vision, Azeez Sani, recalled that Wushishi had, on October 29, announced the release of the results of the 2021 SSCE for school-based candidates.
The statement partly read: “The Council, however, appeals to state governments yet to pay the examination fees of their candidates who sat for the SSCE (Internal), to do so in order to facilitate the release of the result of such candidates.” The Council further disclosed that all ad-hoc staff involved in the conduct of the 2021 SSCE has been fully paid by NECO “The ad-hoc staff includes 18,243 supervisors, 887 assistant supervisors and 65,159 examiners.
The payment which commenced last week has been concluded. “The management appreciates the invaluable contributions of the supervisors and examiners in the success story of the Council over the years, and reiterates its determination to strengthening the existing cordial relationship between them.”
