We recieved an information which confirms that Dozens of Secondary School students, on Thursday, January 14, staged a protest against the non payment of their WAEC and NECO fees by the state government, .

In the past years, the State Government has spent millions of Naira, paying both NECO and WAEC fees for its students.

It was reported that this has now been suspended, due to the fact that many former students didn’t score the needed five credits to qualify for admission into tertiary institutions.

Last year, less than five percent of students that sat for the NECO and WAEC examinations scored five credits and above.

The government decided against wasting money on the project, and would rather spend the money for other important needs in the state.

One of the students, Kabir Hassan said that many of the students in public schools came from poor homes, and that outside government help, it would be difficult for them to pay the WAEC and NECO fees.

Responding, the Chief of Staff, Dikko Raddah , said of the 17,000 students the state government paid for last year, only a little over 300 got three to five credits or more.
