NECO Result: We’ll celebrate first position – Ekiti state government

Ekiti State Government has declared that its emergence the state with the best performance in the National Examination Council (NECO) result released on Saturday was earned. Addressing a news conference in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday shortly after the release of the result by NECO, the Commissioner for Education, Mr Jide Egunjobi, said that the feat resulted from some radical measures taken by the government.

He said that the steps, though painful but meant to change the face of education in the state, included the cancellation of free WAEC and NECO registration fees for students. Besides, Egunjobi said that the introduction of moderate tuition fees in schools for students also played important roll.



He recalled that the emergency Education Summit convened by the present administration in the state shortly after inauguration revealed that payment of examination fees by past administrations was part of the indulgences responsible for past failures.

“Those who were paying for free registration in public exams without first inculcating discipline and hard work in the students did more harm than good for them. “An unserious student whose parents never suffered to pay either school fees or WAEC and NECO money may not see reason in being serious and dedicated to his studies

In the result released by the new Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of NECO, Prof. Charles Uwake, Ekiti was declared the best performing state with over 96.31 per cent success. Edo came second while Abia and Kogi have joint third position. Vanguard
