Government officials withdrew N6bn from NECO account – Former Chairman

Prof Abubakar Mohammed, former Chairman of the National Examination Council had disclosed that government officials withdrew N6bn from the exam body’s account and are yet to make a refund. 

Mohammed disclosed this last weekend, while speaking at NECO’s first award ceremony in Minna, Niger State, which had in attendance educationists and policymakers.

He said the money was examination fees collected from candidates, adding that it is still a mystery how examinations were conducted afterwards. 

Mohammed said; 

“The government, and especially some officials in the Ministry of Education, are out to sabotage the indigenous examination body. I do not owe anyone any apology for my statement, some government officials don’t want NECO to exist.

“The officials first withdrew the N6bn found in the accounts of NECO. To date, the money has not been returned and nobody even bothered to inform us what they did with the money.”
