The National Examination Council (NECO) has issued a warning that the results of candidates from states with outstanding debts will not be released. NECO has stated that several states collectively owe a total of N5.5 billion from 2011 to 2023.
During the announcement of the June/July 2023 SSCE examination results on Tuesday, Prof. Dantani Wushishi, the Registrar and Chief Executive of NECO, shared this information. However, the specific states in question were not disclosed.
Wushishi urged these states to promptly settle their debts, emphasizing that the Council will withhold the results of their students until the outstanding amounts are paid. He stated, “These funds are crucial for running the Council. We kindly request that they make their payments. We will not release the results of candidates from these states.”
Wushishi also pointed out that the underperformance of certain states serves as a call to action, prompting them to reevaluate their education sector and consider improvements across all educational sectors.
It’s worth noting that 61% of the candidates achieved at least five credits, including English and Mathematics.
