The National Council (NECO) has scrapped the use of scratch cards, for the conduct of its Senior Secondary Certificate (SSCE).

Chairman of the NECO board, Abubakar Saddiq, confirmed this on Friday during the commissioning of the equipment and unveiling of 20 Toyota Hilux Vans purchased by the agency, in Minna, Niger State.

Saddiq disclosed that they have procured 8,000 biometric machines, for registration of candidates during the conduct of its examinations.

“In the last people have to buy scratch cards in order to register for NECO examination. That is out. No more scratch cards. People (will) register online and they (will) be given a code and they will go ahead to register.

“As they register, their biometrics are captured. Every is on a particular biometric capturing machine. Every is captured on that small machine.

“It is impossible for anybody to impersonate a candidate during our exams because the captured data is on our platform,” he said.

NECO’s Acting Registrar, Abubakar Gana, said that the equipment were procured to enhance operations in the areas of logistics and overall security of its examination.

According to Gana, NECO had been making use of scratch cards to register over 51,000 candidates for each of its examinations in the past which had not enabled the agency to curb malpractices.

Gana noted that the 8,000 biometrics machine cost the council N500million, while the 20 Toyota Hilux gulped N327,800,000.

“Each of the vehicles cost N16, 390,000 while a unit of the biometric capture machine was bought at N62, 500,” he said.

This is the first time NECO would be deploying biometrics, for the conduct of its Senior Secondary Certificate Examination.

Nigerian govt gets 7-day ultimatum to abolish acceptance fees into tertiary institutions images 11

The federal government of Nigeria has been given a 7-day ultimatum to abrogate admission acceptance fees into all tertiary institutions in the country to encourage learning.

Rights group, One Love Foundation said they decided to give the one week notice to the current government of the country and should the government failed, they will not also fail to seek redress in the court of law to put an end to the ugly scenario.

The group made this known in a statement issued to newsmen by its coordinator, Mr. Patrick Osagie Eholor, in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

The statement said they have been overwhelmed with the outcries of the poor masses whose academic pursuits have been truncated due to their inability to pay the thousands of money as acceptance fee before they could be admitted into the universities under the guise of professional admission.

“Our attention has been drawn to overwhelming protests and outcry from students, parents and the general public of Edo State and Nigeria in general in respect of oppressive and unbearable admission acceptance fees which newly admitted students are compelled to pay by the government in our various institutions.

“Investigations by our foundation indicate that these fees range between N40,000 to as much as N60,000 in some state per student. And that of some federal institution is even higher.

“These fees pose additional hardship and obstacles to tertiary education aspiration of our well-meaning youths and parents whose enthusiastic votes brought the present administration to power.”

Mr. Eholor further accused the government of being insensitive to the plight of the commoners, adding that under this current administration, higher education has become the birth rights of the few rich in the nation.

“Subsequently, under the this administration, only a very slim minority of Nigeria citizens who are either successful industrialists or privileged commissioners, government appointees, anointed contractors, treasury looters, fraud and politicians with deep pockets have the right to give higher education to their children,” the statement added.

The statement further appealed to Nigerian government to hurt acceptance fees in all tertiary institutions throughout or be prepared for a legal action.

“Our foundation hereby stands with every Nigerians both parents and families to resist and reclaim the right of these future leaders to affordable and qualitative education.
