PTA rejects scrapping of NECO,UTME
- Written by Abdullateef Abubakar Jos
The National President of the association, Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, said in a
statement made in Kaduna, that the policy would prevent thousands of students
from qualifying for further studies.
It suggested the upgrading of NECO to make it more responsive to the needs of
Nigerian students seeking admission into tertiary institutions.
``These examination bodies, if scrapped, will not do anyone any good. Instead
of scrapping these very important agencies, government should improve and
consolidate on their achievements,’’ it added.
The body also canvassed for the extension of the validity period for UTME results
to two years, to reduce the stress on students and the burden on parents in
paying for the examination every year.
``Annually, our schools produce hundreds of thousands of students that have
the option of either writing WAEC or NECO to qualify them for admission into
tertiary institutions which cannot adequately cater for them, said Alhaji
