There is apprehension among staff members of the National Examination Council (NECO) as the House of Representatives ordered the suspension of their promotion examination.
The House gave the directive through its Committee on Basic Examination Bodies.
In a statement issued by NECO’s acting director of the directorate of information and digital communication, Azeez Sani, in Minna, Niger State, he said the examination has been suspended indefinitely in line with the directive of the lawmakers.
Sani said, “The management of the National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced the indefinite postponement of the 2024 staff promotion examination earlier scheduled to hold on 14th and 15th February, 2024 in Minna, Niger State”.
The council said the postponement was in compliance with the directive of the Committee on Basic Examination Bodies of the House of Representatives.
Sani said the directive of the House was contained in a letter referenced NASS/HR/10/CT.20/64 and dated 9th February, 2024 and signed by the chairman of the committee, Hon. Oboku Abonsizibe Oforji.
He said with this development, “all NECO staff who are due for promotion this year, should note that the exercise has been put on hold indefinitely.”
