The National Examination Council (NECO) and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence are to come together to check exam malpractice during the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE).
A statement by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, made this known when the Chairman, Governing Board of NECO, Dr. Abubakar Saddiq led a delegation to the Commandant General of NSCDC, Mr. Abdullah Muhammadu.
He said such collaboration would go a long way in ensuring the credibility of the Council’s examination and strengthen the existing relationship between the two organizations.
Sani explained that the Council has put in place measures to check examination malpractice and enjoined personnel of NSCDC to brace up for new challenges that may emerge during the examination.
However, the Acting Registrar/Chief Executive, NECO, Abubakar Gana stated that; “the Council has been enjoying the services of your organization without any hindrance from 2008 to date.
“We want the collaboration to be strengthened to ensure security in all our examination centers across the country.”
The Commandant General pledged the continued support of his agency in the provision of adequate security at examination centers to ensure the credibility of NECO results.
