Niger Assembly Probes Withheld NECO Results Of 30,000 Candidates

Disturbed by the public outcry over the non-release of the results of 30,000 students from Niger State who sat for the 2019/2020 Senior Secondary School Examinations by the National Examinations Council, the state House of Assembly has directed its Committee on Education and that of Legislative Compliance.

The committees are to investigate the development and report back to the House within one week.

This follows a motion on matter of urgent public importance on the floor of the House by member representing Bosso Constituency, Mallam Malik Bosso, who told the House that NECO had withheld result of over 30,000 students from the state due to the non-payment of examinations fees by the government.

Bosso says those students who sat for the National Examinations Council in 2019/2020 respectively are yet to access their results till this moment, adding that as a result of the withholding of their results by NECO, the affected students risk forfeiting their admission into higher institutions of learning for two years.

He therefore asked the House to mandate the Committee on Education and that of Legislative Compliance to investigate the non-release of the results of the affected students without delay.
