Due to the low and average passing percentage of candidates across all states in Nigeria, it was rumored on July 15, 2013, that the federal government of Nigeria had plans to eliminate the National Examination Council (NECO) from the Nigerian educational system. The then-education minister, Mr. Nyesom Wike, made these assertions, which the administration promptly refuted.

Our Background

The Federal Government's response to widespread, intensifying calls for a national examination organization that could respond to Nigerian needs and demands as well as handle the yearly rising number of secondary school students registering to take the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) nationally culminated in the establishment of the National Examinations Council (NECO) in April 1999. Prior to making this crucial choice, a number of panels had been established to discuss the concerns.

The problems first surfaced in 1977, during the Murtala/Obasanjo administration, when questions from the West African School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) were widely leaked. The Federal Government established the Sogbetun commission in response to the public outcry that followed the widespread leak. a commission of inquiry with a special mandate to investigate the root reasons of the leak and provide the government with useful recommendations. The workload of WAEC was above its capability, making it difficult for WAEC to efficiently manage the administration of an exam without incident, according to one of the committee's key findings. In order to lighten WAEC's workload and improve its efficiency, the Sogbetun panel advocated, among other things, the creation of new examination bodies. The committee's advice was not put into action at the time.

Our Mission

The history of NECO and its accomplishments is one that is still being written and cannot be fully conveyed in a post this short. The fact that NECO has helped thousands of Nigerians find gainful employment [and given hope to thousands more - candidates who had been able to keep their matriculation dates because of the timely release of their results by NECO] may be its greatest accomplishment, as has been noted elsewhere.
