The NECO e-verify App for student verification and confirmation is one of the other projects that were unveiled, along with a newly built and equipped NECO driver’s pool, an established and equipped NECO Data and Scanning Center, and a newly constructed block of classrooms for the senior secondary section of the NECO Staff School.

According to Prof. Wushishi, NECO’s efforts to address the shortcomings of the state offices have resulted in the continuing building of three new state offices, which are currently seventy percent completed, in the states of Gombe, Katsina, and Kogi.

The National Assembly had approved funds for the construction of seven more state offices in Nasarawa, Rivers, Lagos, Sokoto, Taraba, Jigawa, and Abia, according to the NECO registrar, who also revealed that the council has not received any appropriations for 15 years.

He said: “The Minister of Education will soon conduct the groundbreaking ceremony for the seven offices. For NECO to finally be included in the capital budget is a major accomplishment. We sincerely appreciate the Minister of Education’s dedication to the council’s purpose, and we are appreciative of his leadership and encouragement, which have fueled our advancement.

The acquisition of the 70 brand-new cars, according to Minister of Education Prof. Tahir Mamman, was a positive move, and he added that the cars would be essential to the nation’s NECO exam success. Prof. Mamman was speaking through Permanent Secretary David Andrew Adejo.

“It will help prevent leakages in the NECO exams,” he said. President Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s administration would work to strengthen the council by including funding for it in the 2024 budget, as education is the cornerstone of every community.
