Buhari Reduces The Cost Of JAMB & NECO Forms

Published

on

The president of the federal republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari has approved a reduction in the cost of forms for final year secondary school (NECO) and post-secondary school examinations (JAMB).

While speaking after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting in State House Abuja on Monday, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari has reduced the cost of forms for some terminal examinations in the country.

He said the examination forms are for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, organised by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), the Senior Secondary School Examination conducted by the National Examination Council (NECO), as well as the Basic Education Certificate Examination.

According to Tolu Ogunlesi (@toluogunlesi), the Head of Digital Communications for President Buhari, who shared the news, the reduction will take effect from January 2019.

He tweeted, “President Buhari has approved the reduction in the cost of Forms for JAMB UTME, NECO SSCE and the Basic Education Certificate Examination. With effect from January 2019, the cost of JAMB UTME Form will drop from N5,000 to N3,500. NECO will drop from N11,350 to N9,850.

“Minister of Education Adamu Adamu announced this just now at today’s #FECBrief. He said President Buhari directed the Ministry to look into the reduction following the significant improvement in revenues being remitted to the Treasury by the Education Agencies.

“The Exam Agencies are not meant to be revenue generating bodies, they’re only supposed to cover costs/operating expenses. The sharp increase in remittances by JAMB(from less than N60m in 2010–2016 to >N15 BILLION in 2017/18) have shown that the fees being charged could be reduced.”

52-year old man, Tayo Ogunmola has been arrested by the ogun state police command, over an attempt to defraud the state’s Commissioner of Police Bashir Makama.

According to the statement released by the command’s public relations officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the arrest of the suspect followed a phone call he made to the police commissioner, pretending to be an old herbalist who mistakenly sent a recharge card pin to the telephone number of the CP pleading for the pin to be sent back to him.

Makama who is familiar with the antics of the fraudsters decided to play along with him while he sent men of the Intelligence Response Team to technically track and apprehend the suspect.

At a stage, the suspect who was not aware that he is being trailed, presented himself as a commissioner of police, a deputy Inspector general of Police, ready to assist Makama only if he can part with a certain amount of money not knowing that the person he’s been discussing with is a serving commissioner of police.

Luck however ran out on him when he was traced to his hideout at Araromi phase 11 in Ilogbo area of Ota where he was promptly arrested.

On interrogation, he confessed being a fraudster who had defrauded many unsuspecting members of the public of money running into millions of Naira out of which he built the house he is living in.

Makama has ordered the monitoring team to properly investigate the suspect with the view of arresting his other accomplices and arraign them before a court of competent jurisdiction.
