November 25, (THEWILL) – The Management of National Examination Council (NECO) has appealed to State governments that have not paid the examination fees of their candidates that sat for the 2021 Senior School Certificate Examination (internal) to do so.

The Council’s Registrar/Chief Executive, Prof. Dantani Ibrahim Wushishi had on 29th October, 2021 announced the release of the results of the 2021 SSCE for School based candidates, adding that the Council withheld the results of candidates whose State governments are still indebted to it.

However, NECO in a statement issued on Wednesday by its Head, Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, said paying the fees would facilitate the release of the results of such candidates.

The Council also said all ad hoc workers involved in the conduct of the 2021 SSCE for school-based candidates had been fully paid.

According to the statement, “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 strengthen the existing cordial relationship between them.

“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 statement added.
