A call has gone to students writing the on-going National Examination Council of Nigeria (NECO) across the State to put in their best, in order to achieve excellent results.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mr. Olu-Ola Aikulola, who made the call while monitoring the examination in the State, said this was achievable when the students were committed to their studies, encouraging parents to allow their wards write the NECO Examination.
Mr. Aikulola, who was represented by the Director, Secondary Education in the Ministry, Mr. Martins Akinsolu, noted that, the examination had been recognised worldwide, and could be used in complementing WAEC
“Parents need to understand that NECO is a recognised examination worldwide and is accepted for admission everywhere, it is even used to complement subjects that the students have been found wanting in WAEC by combining the two results for use”, he said.
On the general conduct of the examination, the Director commended the students for conducting themselves appropriately, adding that logistic support was provided and well coordinated.
Some of the schools visited include Our Lady of Apostle Secondary School, Ijebu-Ode, Muslim High School, Ijebu-Ode, Yewa College, Ilaro, Owode Secondary School, Owode-Yewa, Itolu Community High School, Ilaro, and Love Foundation Model College, Ijebu-Ode.
