Prof. Ibrahim Wushishi, Registrar of the National Examinations Council (NECO), has promised that the results of the 2022 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) would be released no later than 45 days after the conduct of the last paper.
Wushishi revealed this while monitoring the conduct of the ongoing SSCE in some centres in Lagos State.
The NECO 2022 examination ends on Friday 12th August 2022.
“We are on top of the situation and we are giving the assurance that the results of the ongoing exam will be released not later than 45 days after the last paper,” he said.
Meanwhile, Wushishi has lamented that the initial placement of NECO on the list of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) that remit 25 percent of generated revenue to government coffers took a toll on the exam body’s activities.
The NECO helmsman said although the body was removed from the list in June 2022, over N6 billion was deducted from its Treasury Single Account (TSA) when it was on the list, adding that the exam body needs money to meet its obligations.
“From 2021 to June (this year), the minister of finance has deducted from NECO’s Treasury Single Account the total of N6,023,145,000:23K,” he revealed.
