The Registrar makes painful remarks concerning the depths of eight northern states

The registrar of the  National Examination Council, Prof. Dantani Wushishi, said that eight northern states owe the examination council the sum of 1.8 billion nairas.


He has also not hidden the names of this state as he openly calls them one after another, ‘’Zamfara, Adamawa, Kano, Gombe, Borno, and Niger state governments owe the examination body N1.8 billion debt for the students they registered in 2019.”


Wushishi has appealed to the state governors of six Northern states in Nigeria to meet their obligations by settling their debts. This will enable Neco to do some of its other pending responsibilities.


He also claims that the results of these eight northern states he mentioned were not withheld despite the debt and destruction of the mutual respect and understanding cost by this state’s debts. He noted that there has been a dialogue between the council and states to amicably resolve this issue before it causes harm to the body.


Council staffs complain of their low stipends pay

There might be a cause to say that the next marking system of Neco in the next year’s 2022 examination results will be evil as the staff who scored the result for 2021 complains bitterly about the stipends given to them.


Currently, based on the report been heard of, teachers and staff are complaining that they are still yet to receive their payment for the marking of the result of the Neco 2021 candidates


Mrs. Kudi Ahmed, one of the Neco examiners for 2021 who scored mathematics, is complaining that she has marked 1000 scripts for which she is supposed to get paid N16,000, but she has still not yet been paid.


She made a statement like, “They pay N16 per script; I had to lobby to get 1,000 scripts so that I can get N16,000, and even at that, NECO has refused to pay us.


Ok, let’s reflect on a story


The sad remarks by staff who marked the Neco 2021 results are not encouraging at all, as this might lead to a strike and a complete malfunction of the examination body in the coming year 2022.


A brief story of Neco 2021 exams

In Lagos, a boy who sat for the Neco exams 2021 has shared his experience.


He started by saying that the exams were a tough one and that they were barely any chances for examination malpractice, which he specifically called “EXPO!” he said they were several attempts by fellow candidates to indulge in the act of malpractice. Still, they were caught and disgraced by tearing the exam scripts of those offenders.


The boy who did not make his name known also said that this was his first Neco exam. He was so touched when another candidate had to be sent back home because they practiced examination malpractices during the examination.


The young boy hopes to get the best of scores on his result. He openly said despite all, he did not partake in any form of malpractice, e. He never was spotted out by any of the examiners of lousy behavior throughout the examination.


This boys story is quite interesting as he is wished the best of luck on his result for 2021
