Niger State Govt. Stops Payment Of WAEC/NECO Fees Due To Students Poor Performance



The Niger State government said it will discontinue the payment of West African Examination Certificate (WAEC) and National Examination Council (NECO), fees for its students in Secondary Schools in the state.
Gov. Sani Bello of Niger, disclosed this on Tuesday when he visited Justice Legbo Kutigi Secondary School to inspect the ongoing renovation of the school in Lavun local government areas of the state.
Bello said that government can not continue to pay N800 million every year for students that only 5 per cent of them are able to pass with four credits.
He said government would rather invest such money in infrastructure development and provisions of instructional materials for qualitative education.
“We must review the issue of the payment of NECO and WAEC fees because at the moment, we are still owing NECO and WAEC about N800 millions .
“Government spend such huge money for students that cannot even have four credits. Only about five per cent of students will have four credits and above.
“Basically, it is like we are throwing away money. We will rather stop and invest the money on the facilities so that with time we will get good results.
“We have made efforts to pay part of the money and the results will be released.
“The Commissioner for Finance has met with NECO and WAEC officials and there is an understanding that the debt issue will be addressed, “he said.
He said that the payment of examination fees would henceforth be based on criteria where only best performing students would be selected as beneficiaries. (NAN)
