The House of Representatives has frowned at the decision of the management of the National Examination Council (NECO) to bring about 1500 of its staff from across the country to its headquarters in Minna to write a promotion exam.

Adopting a motion of urgent public importance sponsored by Hon. Akeem Adeyemi, the House said the board to consider suspending the decision and allowing the promotion examination to be done at its zonal offices across the country given the security and economic situation of the country.

The Nation learnt that NECO has asked the affected staff to travel to Minna at their expense to participate in the promotion examination, as against the previous practice of conducting the exercise at the zonal offices.

Adeyemi informed the House that through a circular dated January 9, the National Examination Council (NECO) scheduled to hold her 2024 staff promotion examination on 14th & 15th February 2024 at the Federal University of Technology, (FUT), Minna, Niger State.

He said that in another circular dated 17th January 2024, the board published the names of about thousand, five hundred (1,500) staff to partake in the said 2024 Promotion Examination on 14th & 15th February 2024 at the Federal University of Technology, (FUT), Minna, Niger State.

According to him, the board had conducted the promotion examination for her staff at various zonal/regional offices without necessarily making a large number of staff from different States of the Federation travel and converge at one place for the promotion exercise.

He explained that due to the security situation in the country and the economic hardship biting hard on the citizens including the Staff of the National Examination Council (NECO), it is perilous to cause about 1,500 staff to travel from different parts of the country to one place in the name of Promotion Examination.

He said as an examination body which conducts examinations for candidates all over the country, the organisation can conduct promotion examinations for its staff in different States of the Federation.
