Kaduna state ministry of Education says government will pay all outstanding fees to ensure timely release of NECO results.
The Commissioner for Education Dr Shehu Usman Makarfi confirmed this during a chat with radio Nigeria in kaduna.
The Commissioner maintained that
government had earmarked funds for the payment of all outstanding dues owed NECO so that results would be released.
Dr Shehu Usman Makarfi said despite the effect of covid 19 on the education sector, they were optimistic that the results would be good considering the effort of government and teachers.
He further urged parents and students who sat for NECO examination to be hopeful as government has taken measures to ensure that they get their results.
He noted that the E-learning programme would be sustained so that those who were yet
to resume would continue to receive lessons while at home.
Reacting to an allegation that kaduna state government was planning to rename the state university, the Commissioner declared that the story was not only fake but intended to mislead the public.
It would be recalled the NECO had released results of the 2020 senior secondary school certificate examination on 13th jan this year out of which eight hundred and ninety four thousand, one hundred and one candidates made credit in Maths and English language.
