68.6% Pass NECO; Again, Debtor States’ Results Withheld by Onyi42(m): 8:43pm On Sep 10, 2015
Minna—National Examinations Council, NECO,
has released the 2015 Senior School Certificate
Examination, SSCE, with candidates scoring 68.56
percent with five credits and above, including
English Language and Mathematics, which is an
appreciable improvement over the past,
especially last year’s result.

A total number of 975,991 registered for the
various examinations out of which 969,491 sat
for the papers with 664,747 or 68.56 percent
passing with five credits and above; in 2014, by
comparison, 978,886 sat for the examinations
with 511,931 or 52.29 percent passing with five
credits and above.

The new Registrar/Chief Executive of NECO,
Professor Abdulrashid Garba, who announced
the release at Council’s head Office, Minna
Thursday, said the results were an improvement
of 12 percent compared to that of last year.

Centres de-recognized

He remarked that though the NECO
examinations were not completely devoid of
malpractices in some centres and schools, where
such cases were established, results of such
schools or centres were either withheld or
cancelled, while those apprehended will also be
prosecuted to show the council’s zero tolerance
for examination malpractices and add credibility
to the examinations in future.

Professor Garba stated that besides the
cancellation, the centres and schools already
established to be involved in the malpractices,
had been de-recognized indefinitely, while some
were suspended or totally de-recognized.

Seven centres across the country have been
discovered and sanctioned accordingly.
He said already, some of the ad hoc staff linked
to any form of malpractice or for other
negligence had also been disengaged from the
services of the council.

On debtor states

The Registrar, while answering questions on
debtor states, said results of such schools were
being withheld and would be released if
commitments were shown by the affected

Garba said: “t is not only government schools
that owe. I can tell you that only 13 schools,
including private schools, owe us and already
most of them are showing commitments to
settle and we will release such results once we
reach an agreement.”

He attributed the considerable improvement in
this year’s results to the commitment of various
governments at all levels to the funding
education and NECO’s curriculum, which he
described as more “indigenous and homely.
